I just bought a 92 civic hatch its bone stock. I got 41.3 mpg my first tank and second tank was 46.2 mpg.. I did a few mods and cant wait to see if i gained a little but I tried the engine of coasting a few times today. Normally its at 60 plus mph so i pop the clutch in 5th gear once it looses too much momentum. But it does worry me as well that maybe it will be more costly for clutch repairs and so on by doing this compared to the gas savings. And by popping the clutch i mean just bumping it over instead of using the starter not actually "popping it". My question is for those that have been doing alot of engine off coasting. How long have you been doing it and if u noticed anything out of the ordinary from doing it..
