Whats your longest daily coast?
1 Attachment(s)
so far this is sortof my longest daily coast. its about 12km (7.5mi) to work. total distance to work is 17km (10.5 mi) in the morning. at 8km on the graph I use about 20 to 30 seconds of throttle to help and again at 10.5km about 5 to 7 sec of throttle.

im still waiting to sign my new work contract. the new office will be about a 100 mile round trip with a lot longer coasts possible

I'm really happy when I get to coast for 2-3 km.

Max is about 1 km for me, elevation variation is only 75 feet with the bottom being sea level +3 feet.

My longest usual coast is 1.5-2 miles.

Daily isn't something I do - I work at home, so there are many days I don't even drive anywhere - but I have one of about 12 miles that I do fairly often.

7ish miles of 6%ish grade. Normally my mpg goes from 52 to75-81 by the time I reach the bottom.

When I go to my parents house there are three major hills that I drop down to 4th and am at 5in on my vacuum gauge on the way up, but on the way back down I EOC and go for about 3 miles on the longest hill. But what sucks is I normally stay at their house until night so I am EOC'ing with the lights on and that not too good for my battery.

my house is at the top of a 2 mile hill. I pull out my driveway accelerate to 20mph and coast all the way down if I'm lucky the next two lights are green and I can coast onto the highway ramp just hitting 45 at the bottom. bumpstart and give it 10mph to merge and I'm good.

I also have to drive back up the hill when I go home but at least the engine is warm. I have considered parking on the shoulder on the other side of the street and just pushing the clutch to start rolling.

not sure the neighbors would like that tho

I used to have a nice one mile coast, but switching gyms I have lost it, and doubled my in city stop and go. Now my longest is just a half mile.

like dave says you have to come back up that hill. but it is usually a lot warmer in the afternoons which helps!
