Interesting video, even I learned something from it. That thing about staying on the right side of the lane is new to me. Also I noticed it's easier to coast in neutral than to coast in gear. Sometimes in bumper to bumper traffic on the freeway I can get 50+ because all I'm doing is just following from a distance in neutral.

Great Newscast. I find it funny that at the end of the whole segment, they remind viewers that coasting out of gear is illegal.

Is coasting downhill illegal in all states? Well Is it in Ohio?

I can say that there have been 366 visits from the KOTV website since yesterday. Hopefully there will be more still.

Supposed to be the same in Cali. No idea how they could stick it to you.

Nice!

That was a great news piece! Way to get the exposure out there...

Yeah, coasting in Neutral is illegal almost anywhere, but so is going 46 MPH in a 45 MPH zone.

It made a good point, though. Hypermilers are more attentive to the road and surroundings, and often drive under the speed limit -- which Law Enforcers should be very pleased with.
