I coasted with my engine on today down the 1/2 mile monster hill on my morning commute just to get used to the idea. I was surprised by how well my old truck would maintain consistant speed even 3 car lengths behind a semi. I actually was accelerating (just barely, 1mph on GPS) for a moment. I still didn't have the courage to shut down the engine.

I have checked and regreased the wheel bearings up front and swapped out the diff oil in the rear axle so I should be good there.
