Ah.... I have for the first time, a line on a non-snow used tire that is 195x75x14 inches. It is the same diameter as my 205x65x15 tires that I have now, so can be used with the 205, if I can't find another 195x75x14 inch tire.

I would say it's a bit overhyped. My 328i has coast mode for gliding and using it frequently I only see minor improvements to 42mpg VS 41 with it off. predominantly because the traffic and roads here are so unpredictable. Best way is to avoid rush hour and drive lane of least resistance.

P&G makes sense for some folks in some situations, but it would never work for me. I mostly drive on long highway trips, and I can't imagine what it would take out of me to use P&G techniques. Forget the effects on the car; it's me I'm worried about regarding fatigue, attention and safety. For me, driving hours on end are harrowing enough without having to concentrate on the constant manipulations involved with P&G. JMHO.
