You can shut down the engine at long idles. I use the 10 second rule. It's with forced auto stops and pulse-n-glides that we shouldn't do in AT. Sometimes a lead foot early can be better than a limp foot because you want to get to your highest gear sooner than later.

My 5 pillars of fuel efficiency:
  • driving style
  • aerodynamics
  • tires
  • weight reduction
  • engine maintenance
