Re: Getting Started in a 1999 CRV

Without neutral you're really not gliding, so I wouldn't call it P&G, but you could possibly make a small gain by getting on and off the accelerator in a pattern similar to P&G if your torque converter doesn't lock at that time.

Automatics aren't allergic to neutral coasting. If re-engaging Drive is rough, you could rev-match just as is done with a manual.

Understand I'm merely attempting to alleviate any concerns about technical issues, not trying to convince you to practice a technique that you're not comfortable with or think is unsafe. If that's the case then you shouldn't do it.

i'm not saying that at all...i'm simply stating that if you had incredible success with all those mods you'd still not get what i'd consider great mileage. if you were getting say 23mpg pre-mods, and say 30mpg post mods, that's a remarkable nearly 30% gain...likely won't happen tho. but, that is not remarkable in regard to over all efficiency.

listen...if this is your chosen vehicle, then start a gas log, do your mods, and see where it leads you. i believe all those mods will help...how much is the question. just consider that you are limited with such a vehicle. best of luck.

Also, is it possible to P&G with an automatic? Without going neutral and back?
Aero mods are not going to give you much, sometimes none, some time worse than none. You really have to get your driving style down first to get a good base line for testing modifications.
The thing about aerodynamics, is that it is greatly effected by speed. So if you drive 55 rather than 70 you'll see a big improvement. You would see a bigger improvements from mods if you only drive at 70, but it would be better to drive 55 w/o mods. 55 mod vs 55 un-modded will be less noticeable, unless your trying to squeeze out another 2%.
A MPG gauge is almost essential for identifying these little improvements. (I don't have one yet), and is also very helpful for improving your driving style.

Re: Getting Started in a 1999 CRV

I also have a 99 CRV but mine is a 5 speed. I have achieved 34 MPG averages buy coasting in neutral with no aerodynamic mods.
