Neutral is certainly better than just taking your foot off the gas. So as long as your car is supposed to be able to be towed flat it's ok to turn off the engine, but if it's supposed to be raised then it might cause problems. What about an ignition kill switch, would that get around the problem of not being able to flat tow the car?
Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.
