Aha! Thanks very much. I was wondering about doing that, and if the edge of the collar would cut into the wires, but apparently not. Your setup looks very neat.

Also I'm wondering where you got the black button?

I'm not positive it won't ever short out, but I wrapped it in electrical tape first, so it'll last a while

I bought my set-up from Ebay, but I'm sure you can get the button type momentary from Radio Shack

If I only had a dollar for every time I've saved gas . . . wait, I do!

(So, sometimes I would downshift another gear to go raise RPM and get more regen and extend the fuel cut window.)
Do you know what the minimum RPM is for DFCO? A Google didn't show any definitive information.
