Hello with a question

Hey, I'm from Minnesota and I've got a 2005 HCH that ranges from 40mpg in the winter to 55 in the hottest in the summer (that's with my dad's driving). Now this is the first summer I've had the car and it's starting to get warm here and I've been getting 50 mpg by just driving "as though I don't have a break" but there is one point in my commute to work where I have to turn onto a 50 mph road that goes uphill. My mpg usually goes down 1 every time I go up it, any ideas on how to get this to not go down so much?

There's not much you can do besides slow down and coast down the other side...unless you can avoid the hill completely. Have you evaluated other routes?

there is, and i can go in neutral for most of it but it just takes longer and when I'm late for work it's only like a half mile so not much gas wasted.

Just a quick question about the honda civic, since the engine doesn't shut off until you have the break pressed in would EOC be worth it? Like will it save enough so that when you restart your car you end up saving gas?
