Since someone suggested measuring my time spent stopped, I did that in a previous post. It is about one-tenth of a % more fuel burned per trip to work (if the engine is left running at stops).
About 1/10th of an ounce of gasoline wasted.

I don't mean to insult you, just to point out how your posts appear to others. To me, you do behave "troll"..... You don't ask advice and don't know enough to offer it. You provoke us with "research" and then argue. Most of what you say is either against our conventional wisdom, or against Honda's guidelines.
Conventional wisdom is often not wise at all (and sometimes flat wrong). By the way I question the very existence of God. I also question that Honda is godlike in their knowledge or that I should just blindly follow them. They've made mistakes in the past.
I think people should learn to be more tolerant of others, even if they think it's wrong. TOLERANCE is the key to human beings getting along with one another, especially when humans come in so many different flavors (american, european, asian, african, christian, jewish, muslim, buddhist, young, old, middle, engineers, not engineers, Doubting thomases, loyal followers, et cetera). I am in the doubting thomas category. I question everything. By the way I've owned an insight since 2002, so I have as much to contribute as any other driver who has owned one an equal amount of time (though I've driven fewer miles). I am not going to hold back my opinion or thoughts.
In any case, even if I annoy you, there's no call to act like a high school or college student and start using names like "troll" or "A-hole". The moment you reach adulthood, you should stop with the name calling and resolve the differences as an adult would. Not with hate or insults.
