How to driving with load or DWL not understanding

I was surfing the forums on ecomodder and came accross this technique, but I was unable to find a super specific description of how this works.

My guess is would be coming up to a hill maybe or maybe not picking up a little momentum then once on the incline keeping the throttle steady and letting your self slow down, not increasing speed/using more power.

usually I'll pick a gear based on my approach speed. and try to keep a pretty consistent throttle.

Because you didn't get an answer in 2 hours in the middle of the night on a holiday weekend? What exactly is your question? You seemed to describe the technique well enough.

DWL usually means one of the following two definitions:

1. Using an instant fuel economy display, pick a target MPG and attempt to keep exactly at that instant MPG.

2. Pick a throttle position and stick with it, similar to what you describe.

no, it's not this at all. I've been surfing this site off and on for awhile. Very recently a lot and based on how often new topics are added, existing post being responded to, etc.
