@azgearhead: I don't want to get too much off topic but for you,let me
quote myself: "gets me over small hills" . Meaning if I start coasting on a long
slant downhill that is interrupted by a small uphill and continues downwards,
the momentum carries me over the uphill part only when my car is heavier.
When light,I have to restart my engine because I never built up enough speed
on the initial downhill to make it over the small hill.
So using your conclusion yes! Extra weight helps me coast uphill!
