Jeez! I thought we had established that with DFCO in effect, the engine is using ZERO gas, regardless of RPM, during in-gear coasting. It's the WHEELS making the engine's crankshaft spin at 3000 rpm, not the ignition of gas in the cylinders! The PM article does a good job of documenting this, all too well, unfortunately.
You have established absolutely nothing, besides being ill informed and slightly obnoxious,That i got.
Tell me how you suggest one measure for results?
Save gas
Ride a Mtn bike for errands exercise entertainment and outright fun
