Re: Stop start punto evo

A software update for some models enables it to remember on start up if its been turned off. It not worth leaving on though, if it works ocassionally then great, but if not it would be no different to having it turned off

Re: Stop start punto evo

you probably tested it with a "fully-charged" battery,
mine will work fine if Well charged, but short journeys means it just runs ( well), with
no Start/stop,

Re: Stop start punto evo

You can drive it 100 miles if you want BUT YOU STILL NEED TO USE A PULSE CHARGER BATTERY

Re: Stop start punto evo

Last time StartStop worked was oh, somewhere last September.
Ever since its been too short drives on too cold weather (heater working all the time) for it to get active. Plus not many long stops behind red lights - I believe S&S learns from you driving pattern and if most of your stops are short it won't bother.
When it gets warm again it'll pick up again I'm sure

And when I know I stop for longer than 30 sec I usually turn the engine off via key anyway.

Is that not what it's supposed to do

And not being funny, but with doing only 20 miles during the week I wouldn't even bother looking at what MPG your doing.
