My question was to GTR1400MAN as I am puzzled as to what he does do for a very short stop if not the footbrake and does he do anything different depending on whether the auto has stop start or not.
I’ve understood that for very short stops the general advice was to stop the car creeping forward by keeping the footbrake on.
For a very short stop I keep firm pressure on the brake pedal. That way the 1st gear clutch removes drive/creep.
If the stop/start is switched on, that is when it will go to sleep ... hence why I turn it off all the time.
