    Personally, I don't care for the tach revving, engine braking so, I myself do throw it in neutral going down some hills.

    But dude, you’re sidestepping the ECU fuel cutoff at idle revs stuff! You could be getting 1/10th of an MPG higher! Maybe.:boink:

    I don’t pay much attention to gas mileage, but on a back country road yesterday I got 22 mpg on my stock 17 off road.
