So, you really won't see that much of a savings yourself, I myself only saved about 2 gallons out of 5k miles with the feature turned off and on, but it's more for cutting down on emissions across all vehicles as a whole.

The "technical discussions"... how to disable this feature, can be found in this thread: Permanently disable Auto Stop/Start - technical discussions ONLY (merged thread)
Here's an example of that which was just posted today:What happens if your in a line of traffic at a light and the starter or the battery fail?
When you get used to it there is nothing to think about. It took me about 2 weeks when I brought the car 3 years ago to stop worrying about "will the car restart". I don't even realise my engine has stopped anymore. But if you keep getting worked up about "will it start again" then of course you will never get used to it. To me the Eliminator is a solution to a non-existant problem.I don't want to have to think about anything. I just want to drive and have my engine "not" shut off.
What is this "eliminator" you speak of? I have to disable the damn thing every time I start the car, via the button on the lower left dash...And I usually forget until I get to a light. I posted about this very problem a week or so ago, here.Love my "Auto Start / Stop" eliminator. Also, she has a battery maintainer on her if gonna be parked more than just overnight. No issues.
