your telling me you have never roll started a car?  And its probably Diesel which means the fuel doesn't varnish like gasoline does over time.  It is possible.  Not real high odds, but possible.

Have you ever seen Little Miss Sunshine?

EDIT: Now that I think about it, LMS's problem was more to do with shifting I think, not starting.

LoL...My thoughts exactly. Not to mention that I had to push-start my Honda Civic in the exact same manner more times than I care to admit back in the 80s.

Gotta love those Civics lol...they're tanks, though, will survive through even my lousy maintenance and care. And before Hurley even described to the rest what his plan was to get the VW started, I said to myself "Ok, he's gonna get it rolling and pop the clutch" lol...ah, memories. :)

How in the world did an undamaged VW bus get to be sitting on its n the jungle/forest with a dead guy in the driver's seat?  I'm sure Roger Workman wasn't just driving along and the car just tipped over and he croaked instantly...

My initial reaction is that the "incident" that was mentioned in the Swan training film lead to Roger's death and the car being tipped over.

Very likely explanation.

Overall, I just think its more back-up to the theory that 'The more you will something to happen, it will happen'.

Or a stupid reason, like Roger is drunk, park on a stepped place, a poison snake bite him, he jumps scared, the seatbelt acts with the kinetics of his jump, and the leverage of terrain makes the VW fall on the side, and a drunk poisoned man, restrained by a seatbelt on a fallen vehicle can't do much other the wait for dead...

WHAT!?

I could happen!!!

Let me expand on that!
Roger also used to pick up the journals from the tube of the Pearl Station...chain reaction...above happend and the whole island started to unravel like a cheap suit. People in the other stations, depending on him(for food or his common Work Man Wit), either also die or left their stations to wander about the island only to be killed by Smokey or the Others.

One last thought...if Roger died in the vw crash? Why was the key around his wrist?

So perhaps the "incident" was the fact that Roger didn't come home with the beer.  If my wife didn't come home with the expected beer, there'd be an incident here too. :)

Sillyness aside, I like the idea that Roger was to pick up the tubes and shuttle them as well as do other non-essential tasks.
