The aspect which makes me adopt the practice of disabling it at the start of every journey is to eliminate the additional wear on the starter motor, on the flywheel gear ring, and on the battery.

That's exactly my concern with stop/start tech - do we know if there is any clear and documented findings on start/stop causing earlier wear of starter/batt/etc vs a car that does without?
