great idae BUT.....

I want to control when I decide to go to neutral coast.

I wouldn't want to be in neutral coast and sunddenly need to accelerate.
THe 1-2 seconds of lag would be very dangerous.
I only neutral coast when there is no other drivers or things are clear.
There would be tooo many variables in the desicion proscess to have it go into neutral "just becuase".
Ps I have been neutral coasting most of my life, but since 2000, I have driven over 500,000 miles in two cars: a 1997 Avalon 216,000 miles & a Q45 258,000 miles
