    So far as I could see there does not appear to be a link in the stop start system to the turbo temperature so that Stop Start is inactive if turbo is too hot?

    You plan to drive in first gear for 60 miles at max revs?

    No, so I assume that if engine water temperature is ok then as turbo is apparently both water & oil cooled Honda are content to let Stop Start activate without ANY risk of oil carbonising due to turbo temperature being too high?
    Otherwise only other safeguard is that Stop Start will not work if Type-R mode is active.
    Oil carbonisation in hot turbo's is a know problem so let's hope Honda have the problem sorted in diesel HR-V, Civic Type-R & Civic MY 2017 vehicles.
