I would think that Shouty, as a mechanic, would see the obvious benefits of additional breakdowns and maintenance from start-stop systems.

1)Boat payments for the Mechanics weekend toys.
2)More traffic into his shop, maybe enabling him to buy more toys.
3)The additional complexity of the cars would force the inevitable switch to full electric vehicles. (This may reduce the number of hours the mechanic has to work since electric cars don't require as many repairs).
