I think the "hypermiling" as one possible reason got to him, some try doing this in traffic where it really isn't appropriate.
psycho had luck starting with the clutch, doesn't always seem to work on fuel injected vehicles - ask the NASCAR guys who didn't have luck "hypermiling" (grin). It worked for them most of the time, but they weren't happy the times it didn't!
As a general rule, I've noticed most FI types need more turns before firing than any carbureted vehicle, making the proverbial push start a LOT more difficult.
Now that you've posed the question, I bet quite a few owners of similar cars will try it just to see what happens, so you may get more replies after they give it a shot.

I don't know why this wouldn't be possible on a newer generation car as I'm sure manufacturers would understand the need. Obviously not applicable to me (DCT), but now I'm curious.
I have to drift start my Jeep nearly every time I pull it out of the garage because it sits long enough between drives and my battery sucks. Luckily my driveway has an incline

|mac.mogul||What reason do you have for needing to do this?|

If you doing some drifting in your car and it's not started, you might have other issues.
