Default Yeast starter necessary with yeast fuel?

I wanted some perspective on the quality of my LHBS since it's the only place I've ever bought ingredients, so I've ordered a partial-mash Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone from Austin Homebrew. I ordered a vial of Wyeast, and also decided to try out the Brewvint yeast fuel.

So, for this beer with an OG of about 1.052-1.056 (small, by my usual standards), do you think a yeast starter is necessary in addition to the yeast fuel?

Thanks in advance.
