I know this is an older post but it is very relevant to my thoughts. I feel like I am getting hypermiling down very well. The only thing I don't do so far is the coasting aspect, mainly because I fear it might be terrible for my transmission. I drive a 2010 Civic Sedan - Automatic. Should I need to Rev match or should it do this automatically? I have gathered that if I wait a couple of seconds before accelerating after switching back into D that it should be fine with no problems. Just would like a little input before doing this. I know a lot of people coast, but does it have negative effects on the transmission? I plan on keeping this car for a very very long time and would hate to have premature transmission failure.
