So in other words coasting in D is more fuel efficient than coasting in N? I'm sorry english isn't my first language.

With the Civic I'm driving, it doesn't feel like there is any type of engine braking when coasting in D. I also don't feel any engine braking when driving down a hill and changing between D and N and going back to D. If I want engine braking with my CVT, I have to use S or the paddle shifters and switch to a lower gear.

Coasting in N is more fuel efficient than coasting in D.

Thanks. What do you think, how much fuel can be saved with coasting in N vs coasting in D on a, let's say 100 miles trip, with some steep hills and declines?

And I also wonder if it will long term damage the CVT/Torque converter clutch if you go from D to N and back to D all the time while driving.

That's my question. See post#1.
