I won't EOC an auto for a few reasons. First. it may or may not damage the tranny, so, just not worth the small fuel savings. Second is for safety. This applies particularly when in traffic. With a manual, you have an instant means of spinning up the engine, even if it doesn't start, to regain power steering/brakes. With an auto, there is a delay and what the vehicles doesn't want to restart?
