Lbar, You should be pumping gas thru that 555HP "V" like it is going out of style.
I would be! Save gas in your cav and pour thru what you saved when in the caddy.

Growing up one of my buddies had an old Volvo that would backfire every time he shut it off but not for about 10 seconds. We would be out of the car and walking away watching the poor sap that happened to be walking past his heap when she blew.

Back to the OP,
Get smooth on the bump starts and even the tired motor mounts will likely hold up. One thought on clutch wear with bump starting, people who get realy high gas mileage out of their cars are easy on clutches because they never rev em up to take off or between gears. We stay out of the throttle so the clutch sees much less wear than the average stick shift driver.

Starting a warm engine takes ~0.03Ah. That's why there's no noticeable clutch or battery wear.

Any additional wear on the battery is from running the accessories with the engine off. A small solar panel ~10w mounted outside the car or 20w inside, will more than offset that. Fully charged battery every time you get in

My 1998 Civic has 270,000 miles on the original clutch. For the last 8 years and 100,000 miles it has been EOC and clutch started dozens of times per day. Still going great.
