FWIW, my Insight surely does DFCO on deceleration. It will even mildly regenerate, more so at higher speed. (it will regenerate harder if I press the brake pedal)
It will stay in DFCO if I feather the throttle to neutralize regeneration and prolong the 'glide'.
Regeneration aside, I see no reason why DFCO would not function in non-hybrid CVTs?

Unless you're running AC. That may keep the juice flowing even when decelerating.
The less I use the ventilation system and other power consumers, the better it DFCOs.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
