    All props to @ClarityMTL who came up with the ROP acronym on another thread and answered my plea for a name. All I did was stand on his shoulders and add Engine Start (which may or may not be an improvement). I think we finally have a shorter and easier way to refer to this much observed and much discussed phenomenon. Let the Clarity Brain Trust decide on this or come up with a better name. If the majority can agree on this, I’m going to put the Good House Keeping Seal of approval on it.

    Couldn't we just call it DROPPER for Dumb Regen Overcharge Protection Prompting Engine Run?

    Sorry if I offended with my sarcasm. This is not my favorite design characteristic of the Clarity. I have (for the most part) learned to accept it with all of what I love about the car.

    No prob @Robert_Alabama. I could swallow it much easier if Honda would just tell us why in the world they had to do it this way. It’s not very intuitive to me.

    BORING: Battery Overcharge Risk Is Negated Grotesquely :p

    But seriously, I think ROP is fine. People seem to prefer TLAs... Three Letter Acronyms.

    So many creative options! I'm truly humbled to be in the running. :)

    Honorable mention to insightman who came up with "premature enginulation" in another thread.

    ROPES may be better than ROP from a mnemonic point of view.

    For those who would rather not have another abbreviation, I submit this new one-word alternative: regenginate (verb: When the ICE engine starts due to regenerative breaking).
