In the past a few times. But today with all the electronics systems in modern cars, it's not worth the risk because of possible damage to the car.

I have jump started many cars in my life.

I don't have jump starting cables in my hybrid

Hybrids can be jump started (by another vehicle)
but
hybrids cannot jump start other vehicles
(because it could damage the hybrid's electronics)

hybrids make lousy emergency support vehicles.

I have jumpstarted another vehicle. Even a six-volt VW Bug with a twelve-volt electrical system. The engine in the Bug was definitely cranked up!

If you want me to jump you, you had better have the jumper cables as I don't have any.
