Engines don't get addicted to easy start! People do!

People who use Easy start are getting around a problem with the engine not starting. If you don't fix the problem then you'll always need the easy start to get things going, hence why people think they are addicted.

But it's the people who use Easy start that are the addicted ones They're just too lazy or tight to get the engine fixed.

My definition of easy start is turning a key instead of pulling a rope!
