I'd guess that unless a car is designed to switch itself on and off, it should not be switched off for less than between ten and thirty seconds, depending on the model. There's starter maintenance to consider, too. Driving around to get parts can eat up a lot of saved droplets.
There is no excuse for a land vehicle to weigh more than its average payload.
