About 7 miles coming down the Blue Mountains into Pendelton, OR. I did spin the engine over a few times to build up some vacuum, cause I did NOT want any issues with the brakes.

I had to do some pulsing, but this was mostly EOC. 31.4 miles from Tejon Pass to Valencia on southbound I-5 (the Grapevine) north of Los Angeles.


Here's another. California Hwy 58 from Tehachapi Pass toward Bakersfield.

I just did an 8.8 mile coast w/o touching the gas on my wife's AT 2012 Hyundai Elantra on southbound I-405 from the top of Mulholland Pass into Santa Monica. The SG registered 259 mpg for the 8.8 miles. I fed it some gas to keep my speed above 55 mph, and dropped to 129 mpg at 11.8 miles.
