The SHOW - '95 Ford SHO Taurus

I have to tell you, I was coasting in neutral with my SHO and found that first of all, it didn't save me enough to do it! I drove thru two tanks of gas, one hypermiling with coasting in neutral and the other with coasting in drive and found that there was such a little difference it wasn't worth it to me. The thought of breaking that POS trans that cost about $2000 made me stop doing it.

In my car that I am building it has a manual transmission and I will be coasting in neutral or with the clutch despressed. But with my SHO, I decided the gain wasn't worth the chance of damaging the tranny.
