maybe you can reduce the rpm in half, but it doesn't use twice as much gas to run 1500rpm (IN NEUTRAL). And honestly, how much time do you really spend coasting....
Please clarify. If coasting in neutral at 65 mph & 1500 rpm is 400 mpg, wouldn't 750 rpm in neutral at the same speed be 800 mpg, which is half the gas and double the mileage?
