How do I turn off stop-start on my new Volkswagen Golf?

Is it possible to disconnect the stop-start function on my 2012 Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion? I keep forgetting to switch it off until it cuts out the first time I stop. Surely it must eventually wear out the starter? It drives me crazy - makes me look like I'm letting the car cut out all the time. If all vehicles had it the streets would be polluted with the noise of dozens of car engines stopping and starting. I'm not convinced that this particular innovation will be popular. What do you think?

Why is my Passat's fuel consumption worsening?

I have a Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion with just 4,000 miles on the clock. The fuel consumption is increasing and has gone from 53mpg average in October to 48mpg now. Dealer says he can find no fault on electronic test rig. Any ideas please? Previously got over 60mpg on same journey now getting 48-49mpg and seeming to be dropping. Variables like fuel etc. all same as is possible and driving style not changed. Best regards and Happy New Year to all.
