If it works out that a series of blips costs less in fuel than just idling, a solenoid acting on the throttle cam could automate it.

I think the ultragauge is reporting more injector time off than we are actually having though. (I don't know for sure though) it seems like the injectors are cutting off during the drop and the UG is showing that cut off to be longer than reality.

How does Subaru handle the transition from DFCO (clutch in/neutral and foot off throttle) to idle? does it go right back into closed loop. or remain on an "initial idle" program for a moment.

Learn from the mistakes of others, that way when you mess up you can do so in new and interesting ways.

One mile of road will take you one mile, one mile of runway can take you around the world.
