I have been coasting down hills in neutral for years and had also wanted an inclinometer. This Sunday was the first time that I drove to my parents' house using pulse and glide. I pulsed up. I glided down. If the hills were not steep enough, I would pulse again, but it was interesting, I was not as concerned with maintaining speed, I was satisfied with a slow deceleration.

I wish that I could say that it was a record trip.

I did forget to check my tire inflation, but when I noticed uneven wear, I stopped over-inflating.
