Most modern systems totally kill the fueling on over run so though I can
see there being certain combinations of steepness and length of hill were
you may gain a bit I doubt if it saves you much, the EPS stops me even trying
it as soon as the volts drop the steering is incredibly heavy.

I make great use of DFCO but I regularly drive a section of road which has two downhill sections where even top gear would bring the car to a slow halt and I normally just select Neutral. The first section is about a mile long and the second a mile and a half. I just wanted to give EOC a try to see what difference it made. Other than at parking speeds my EPS doesn't make a great difference. I have driven many vehicles which had no power steering and much heavier steering than the Jazz with EPS off (SAAB 99 springs to mind).
I very much doubt it would make a lot of difference but I just wanted to give it a try. Hypermilers use EOC all the time, every opportunity.

We have to try these things, and were you are you have some great roads to try them on.

Gave it a try today, but unfortunately, even when the ignition is on, if the engine isn't running the ScanGauge doesn't operate. As a result I got no feedback as to the immediate effect. I don't think I will bother with EOC and just go back to my usual coasting with the engine on.

Important note for the Scangauge and EOCing. You have to have it set to hybrid so it stays on during those coasts.

Thanks. never thought of that. Still not going to bother pursuing EOC.

Yeah, it's taking a chance to turn off the ignition just for a few ounces of fuel. If the police don't take notice in an accident, you can be darn sure the attorney for anybody injured will move heaven and earth to get anything and everything that could in any way have affected the accident. On that you can be assured. And the computer will tell all.

My car has an automatic transmission and electric power steering and possibly other features that could be a real problem trying to coast with the ignition and/or engine off.

I sure won't risk it.
