I have a question (okay a few questions) for you guys that EOC for your glide. How do you start back up? Do you pop the clutch or use the starter? Either way, doesn't that wear out components faster? Honest question, not being a troll. I tried EOC a few times and restarted with the clutch but I keep thinking I'm going to take out the clutch over time. I've been trying to play around a bit with EOnC coast. I think it helps a little but not a lot. Now almost all my driving is in heavy city traffic, mostly with a cold engine. I'm not doing the 80% load with a cold engine and I usually just get up to speed and I have to stop anyway. Is P&G even a technique that works in town?

Almost all my driving is done 1-5 miles at a time.
Best short trip: 2.4 l/100 km, 3.9 km
