NICE-on Coasting; AT Hypermiling

Hi, I attended my first mini hypermiling clinic led by SentraSE-R ( Darrell) and got to see an elite hypermiler in action. It was great! I also got to see pulse and glide with an AT performed by Kris, a fellow hypermiler. After seeing it done safely and effectively, I decided to go ahead and add this to my hypermiling efforts. I tried it out on the way home from the meet and have been using it when I get the opportunity to do so safely. No noises or other distress, just smooth engagement when shifting back into Drive!

I just refilled my gastank so I should be able to check my results in another 400 miles or so. I'll report on the results. My last few tanks have been in the mid 27mpg range. I drive a 2000 Jaguar S-Type ( 3L V6, 5sp AT ) that has an EPA rating of 19.
Kudos and thanks to Darrell and Kris for their assistance.

L&S

Glad to hear it's working for you! Check about needing to rev-match your AT or whether you don't need to.

Hi,
What seems to work best for my Jag is to just shift back into drive, wait a second for engfagement and then start the pulse. I'm hoping to meet with Darrell again so we can use his scangauage to determine the most efficient acceleration . So far I'm not seeing a large difference but I've been forced to do a lot more short trips and city traffic than usual. Ir does make it more fun so I'll keep doing it as long as there is no downside.
Regards, L&S
