I should have copy/pasted the manual the time I posted, but will do now

Automatic Engine Start/Stop Function
The Automatic Start/Stop Function of your vehicle automatically switches off the engine during a stop. Additional information on the Automatic Engine Start/Stop Function, refer to page 56.
If the engine is stopped and then started again, fuel consumption and emissions drop compared to an engine that runs permanently. Stopping the engine even for just a few seconds can result in savings.
Use of this system can cause premature wear on certain vehicle components.
In addition, fuel consumption depends on other factors as well, such as driving style, road c.......

It makes perfect sense though, ll that starting up all the time......not using it.
