Made for stop and go?
What is the impact of stop and go commute type driving on mileage, battery, starter, etc. if the engine shuts down for every stop? My concern is that the hybrids are designed for use in cruising or at least more time in motion than stopped.
Has the gasoline engine starter been designed for this or is this a situation where undue stress is placed on the starter, shortening expected life and reliability?
