    stop start must cause wear and tear. It puts strain on timing chains & starter motors and I also prefer to let the turbo cool down for a bit. Swambo had an X Trail that drove me crazy with its ASS. There again ASS is a good description for it 😃😃

    I did a desktop calc and came to the conclusion that there are savings on my commute but very little as a car uses very little fuel while idling. I seem to recall BMW quoting 0.3l/100km saving.

    I cannot see how it can use more fuel with ASS though, and certainly not 1.5L/100km so there must have been other variables not accounted for.

    More modern systems no longer uses the starter to restart the car so minimal added wear and tear and lot more seamless than older systems. I'm still not a fan of the system but have become neutral with the latest itteration.
