By the way, a few of you mentioned power steering, what's that?
Something that I have needed to fix on two different cars so far and was not cheap.

Go into advanced settings, and set it to COM.
After learning that the TDI idles at 0.1 GPH when warm, it has become a moot point indeed.
Hm, might be a version difference... I don't see any option for configuring the "off event" ...

Exactly. With our diesels there is really no point in killing the engine. When they are fully warmed up they show 450 mpg or more on the ScanGuage with the engine on! Gas engines are much less efficient at idle and EOC works well for many gasser drivers.

Eon-C saves wear and tear and keeps brakes, power steering and airbags fully functional on our VWs. My biggest fear is starving the turbo of oil. That alone makes me leery of EOC.

I hope you do get to try DFCO on your mountain commute. Decelleration Fuel Cut-Off or "engine braking" allows you to run all your accessories for free, zero fuel used. I find I have to shift as low as third on some descents (and run A/C) to keep from using the brakes much. I have used DFCO and Eon-C and my 90 day average is 60 mpg over the last 3 tanks of fuel.
60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun

Unfortunately, the mountain job is done. I got the scanguage a little too late to check all that out. I was already doing some P&G on the way back home, lots of little hills to extend glides. Tried that on the last few drives.
Now I am close to home and only on that second tank on the SG. At the rate I am driving, this will take a while
I do as much DFCO as I can, EonC, and playing with P&G as well. It is a partly city drive these days.
