I was not being critical of your post, just being cynical of Start-Stop in general.
yeah I think the feature is idiotic. It makes me nuts when I'm in traffic and I hear a car shut off for 5 seconds and start back up again.
maybe in horrible city traffic or something where you are stopped for 80% of the total time it could serve a purpose, but in rural areas like where I am you are driving 98% of the time and maybe hit a light or two for 10 seconds, 20 at most
