The Hab car broken down just outside of GJ and was towed to the Best Western Hotel. The front desk at the hotel has the car keys.
While driving at 40 mph the rpm gauge went down to 0 then the car slowed to 0 with no response from gas pedal.
Then the check engine, low battery and oil lights turned on. Failed to restart battery with jumper box from car mechanic. 
Then AAA towed the car. Also DG told us the Crew 131 drove the car too hard and too fast and got a speeding ticket.

Comments:
For future reports, please help us understand some of the reporting requirements for the Engineer. We looked on HAL for instructions but couldn't find them so we still have these questions:
Diesel Fuel Level: is this the fuel level of the main generator?
Propane Fuel Level: where do we find this?
Gasoline Fuel Level: is this the car gasoline?
ATV/Car Oil: Do you want to know oil used, oil added, or oil level?
Sim question: When we are supposed to check levels of things that are outside (like the trailer water or the static tank water) does the engineer usually do this as an EVA with the suits on, or does the engineer usually just go walk outside quickly to check?
In the future, Nick will make a separate GreenHab report for the GreenHab information to go on
the Network part of the engineering report: does that mean the internet network connection or something else? Where do we find signal strength dB?
Do you want us to check the ATVs every day even if we didn't use them, or can we paste in the previous day's values?
