I got it started because I finally gave in and decided maybe the amps are too low. So I jumped it with another car and it fired immidiately. So apparently my battery could be shot again.

Idling I am at 11.5 volts, and it jumps to 11.7 with a little bit of throttle. To me that seems extremely low. New 80 amp alternator was installed during the winter so I know thats good, and the the fact it jumps a few volts when I give it some throttle tells me its getting a charge, as well as the driving 30 minutes without it dying on me.
