Yes it does! Met my wife there too. Also, I didn't think of the weather conditions changing that much. I looked on the maps and it looks like that grade goes from 2800' at the peak to 1400' at the base. That is quite a difference. For the record, I calculate the grade to be an average of 5.3%.

I can usually feel when it does, at least I think it does.

Good question, I assumed it did since I "think" I can feel them cut off, how would I check for sure?

Also, going home yesterday I checked the LOOP on a couple of the short hills I descend on my daily commute. When I "feel" the car go into DFCO the readout will go to 9999MPG and LOOP goes from "closed" to "open". So I am assuming that the scangauge is detecting it.
