I rarely hit high enough revs to get DFCO, if this car even does it. Today I started engine braking but I'm not sure if it is more or less efficient than neutral coasting with friction brakes.

How do you guys change gears during engine braking? I feel like it's probably harder on the clutch than bump starting.

An MPGuino would be nice.
He gave me a dollar. A blood-soaked dollar.
I cannot get the spot out but it's okay; It still works in the store
