Now I'm having fun.

Have some fun with the guys in alt.energy.homepower!

There's a thread entitled "How to Conserve Energy" wherein people are claiming that coasting down hills actually gets you WORSE gas mileage because modern ECUs are designed that way. Scott even used a ScanGauge to prove it. Apparently he's getting worse mileage while coasting downhills.

By the way, I'm Beemerwacker there.

I remember the last time I coasted down a hill, gas tank started spilling gas all over. I called honda and they told me that's how it was designed!
