Pulse and Glide in a 1997 Toyota Avensis Auto


At the moment i'm searching for a TDI car to hypermile, and my current runabout is a

1997 Toyota Avensis 2.0 Auto (3speed!!!)

Can I "Pulse and Glide" with the auto transmission (i.e cruising down to lower target speed with engine IDLING and gbox in neutral)?

The car seems to roll pretty well in neutral, and takes a relatively long time to drop from 60mph to 40mph.

I'm currently setting a benchmark tank for it without P&G but would be interested in trying it!

Answers on a postcard...
