Nice movie. That is a very efficient way of driving on hilly roads, using the momentum. A simple cruise control that maintains a steady speed is only efficient on totally flat roads. In hills (and even mountains) it's better to turn te CC off and 'play' with the accelerator = faster downhill and slower uphill. That is my technique for several years.
