Neither was I, until I tried it and it really brought my fuel consumption down.

Coasting, even in neutral, is more efficient than engine braking (DFCO)

I usually downshift through the gears until around 15mph or so (2nd gear)
Keep in the highest gear as possible - downshifting only just before the engine starts using gas again to keep up the revs.
Downshifting uses gas
