Thank you both for the ideas. I have tried coasting, but then I have to sacrifice wear and tear. But I guess that is where learning to fix cars comes in. I've been thinking about spending some extra time working on the road fixing it up to get better coasting areas. The last 1.5 miles I can coast, with engine off, if I get enough speed for one hill. And I like the idea of walking some of the time. A great opportunity to work on the road and it would never hurt to walk more. I don't know why I never thought of that before seeing how we've done that lots in past Winters. And I WILL read, read, read! : )

~Thanks again!~
