I really don't do enough DFCO to know. I always need to scrub surface rust off my brake rotors, so if I need to slow down, the engine is usually off and I just hit the binders.

Alternator control would be cool to do, yes.


So, this evening I went to pull the passenger seats out of the car for temporary weight reduction... but I can't pull the front passenger one because it's got a side airbag built in, and the computer will freak out.

Stupid smart car! I want my money back.
