I've been only using EOC / p&G in city conditions and exceptionally long highway coasts recently (mainly because I want the heater on!)....And partly because I'm trying to manipulate my car's lean burn mode on the highway.
I'll bet 39 mpg as long as temps don't come up. If you EOC in your city driving and just leave it running on the highway, I bet you'd top 42.

Not sure whether I'm being conservative or optimistic but my money's on 46.

According to my scangauge (which is not calibrated), Piwoslaw is the closest so far. This mornings commute showed me 44.4 mpg. Although, I admit I did find myself a very nice semi going 50 mph. I followed him at a safe distance for a fair amount of the trip.

As a side note, I am finding it hard to resist the urge to P&G haha. It just so natural to do now. I am coasting down hills where I can maintain or just slowly loose speed.

Doax, Thanks ! I've often wanted to see some of the best MPG cars on this site driven 'normally'.
By this I mean driven the exact posted speed limit, no tricks like EOC, or P&G.
This gives me a better idea of what certain mods to a particular car can do for FE for the average driver out there that is not willing to P&G with the engine off.

Yes, I'm also curious to just see what I'd get if I didn't feel like trying. P&G is work. You do get used to it, but its still way more involved than steady state cruising.

The trip home was a bit worse. I rolled into the drive way at about 40.3 mpg. Again, this is on an uncalibrated scangauge, so it could be a fair amount off.

What percentage of your drive would you normaly EOC? How many miles is your commute? What's your average speed? Just asking cause I made spread sheet and am hoping to predict the results from EOC.

My commute is 21 miles one way. I probably have the engine off close to half the time. I'd have to double check the average speed, but I'd guess low 40s.
