The subject is "The most efficient way to slow down".
Uh Huh, and the most efficient way to slow down is to coast to the stop with the engine off, as noted. If you have to hit the brakes hard or use engine braking, you're either doing it wrong or you're going down a hill with a stop at the bottom. Start the coast earlier.
