any better way than EOC?

im getting above 30 mpg all city on my civic manual, i think i can hit 40 if i EOC, but i tried it a few times and when i use the momentum to push start my car at 2nd gear, it starts up and then goes off when its warmed up.

I have to wait for 10 minutes then crank it and it would be back to normal

Reminds me of a problem I had with an 87 Ford Escort EXP. The stator inside the distributor had gone bad. I would have to wait to crank it again and the time kept getting longer and longer. I bought a new distributor after breaking the housing,trying to get the stator out.

Sometimes the coil will overheat if powered on and not in use too.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
