When I did P&G, I always bump start the motor. I would let out the clutch just enough to lightly grab and start the engine. Give it a try sometime and see how you feel about it.

I gave up on P&G months ago because Winnipeg traffic is all accelerate like hell to get through the green light and slam on the brakes when it turns red. People get angry when there's even a slight amount of coasting on the streets. 35-mpg is the price I pay (Instead of 60+mpg P&Ging).

And yeah, my clutch is pretty worn. It doesn't grab until the final few millimeters of release.
