If I had a 2013, I would always keep it off.

I currently get about 11 mpg (+/- 1 mpg), but I think the auto start/stop (A.S.S. ) is a BandAid on a bullet hole. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't tolerate the annyance for a few miles per gallon extra...
I think the A.S.S. is more about emissions than fuel economy.
