My understanding working on cars as a teenager was that engine components only had a certain number of "starts" in their usable lifetime. That was a long time ago, forgive me if I don't remember specifics (my "shop" car was a 69 Plymouth Duster, Canary Yellow of course).

It could be a myth or it could be a problem that has long since been rectified.

Regardless, allow me to rewrite my question -

Has anyone seen statistic on actual efficiency improvements from the Start/Stop feature?

I'd be interested in seeing them just for my own knowledge.
