I know that Driving Without Brakes is one of the top FE tips to use but I still find myself braking at every stop out of habit I guess.

I can't seem to find a landmark to release the gas and begin coasting in time to a complete stop without either having to re accelerate again orhave some moron riding my tail and honking because I'm coasting around 20mph.....HELP!!! Lol.

This may sound silly but I thought I'd be wasting more gasoline taking more time coasting to a complete stop due to the engine idling still versus coasting to slow down and braking lightly to a stop...?

What about the Emergency Brake??? Can I use that to gently slow me down or will it cause permanent damage to other components???
