I've never heard of that. So all you have to do is let off the accelerator and the fuel cuts off and you are basically running with the engine "off" but still slowing down without using brakes? Is this on all new cars or just some?

Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.

That's exactly right. Most new cars have the feature. It's there on my 1996 Honda, and all newer Hondas. One exception I know of is Hyundai - the Elantra as new as 2002 didn't have it.

Mine will fuel-cut in gear down to 1200 rpm, and then it starts feeding fuel again. You can feel a slight "surge" when that happens. You can downshift to put the rpm back above the mark and maintain fuel-cut. This works on automatics, too.
