I do. You can start the motor back up while moving in neutral, but you need to hold it in start for a second longer than normal or else the engine will stall and refuse to start for about a minute.

I would think that would be pretty hard on the tranny though.

On old automatic transmissions they had a pump working both ways, so that you COULD bump start them like you said. Since the 80's though, I dont' think any automatic transmissions have this feature

Just started doing it! Finding more and more opportunities as well. I would like an engine kill and engine start button though. Diamondlarry just pm'd me how to put in an injector kill, I'll get that hooked up ASAP!

My CRX is auto and you can see my average below in my signature.

I have recently moved to a more congested area so that is undoubtedly going to change my MPG. I haven't gone through a full tank yet at our new address though.

Another auto CRX here. I've hit 42 mpg on long highway trips, cruising at around 75 mph. I generally get 34-37 in day to day driving. This is with a D16Z6 swap (done for power rather than FE) and the lockup solenoid wired to ignition switched power.

The Scion xB has an automatic and I'm using engine-off coasting daily during my commutes. I just got a ScanGauge II about a week ago and have begun to watch the instantaneous MPG and tank average. Today I managed to attain 40.3 mpg overall for my 26 mile roundtrip. That feels like progress.
