Thanks for your answers.

'm pretty good at clutch starting, (I race motorcycles and you often have to do that if they have no starter)
I just know the more times you push the clutch in and out it has load on it and thats also put on bearings and they will just wear out faster. I can just see needing throw bearings or release bearings and having to replace them, which on a Subaru is expensive. So I was curious if this is something you factor in or even worry about.
I can see using this technique in a few places on the commute where I have a few long hills down and little short steeper hills upward on the way home. I usually take a different route home from work due to traffic being lighter. I tried it on the way home just guessing that I was supposed to clutch start and I can see that doing that regularly would probably pay off.
