How bad is auto start-stop?
How much, if at all, does the auto start-stop harm the diesel engine?
Outside of any debate about inconvenience or personal preferences (please avoid that discussion here and also avoid how to disable ASS) what is the damage to the engine itself by simply letting it shut off as often as it wants? I've done some googling but haven't found much of a solid, factual answer. Finally, anyone roll with ASS and get a little better fuel economy, if so, any idea how much better?
Judging by the numerous "how to disable" threads across the internet, folks aren't a fan and I get that. However, I'm interesting in learning more about how this feature affects the longevity of our engines.
