Do you turn OFF your engine during the "coasting" segment of "Pulse & Glide"?

I have, though very little and only when I have at least a good 80% chance of seeing the results go well, such as when there's little to no traffic, it's not rush hour, it's not raining, not much traffic pulling out off the side streets, etc., inclusive of knowing just how long I have to keep control of it without any sort of power assist.

Diesels automatically cut off fueling when coasting in gear. Coasting in gear down a 6% grade over many miles cools off my engine completely. LOL

My common rail fuel injection does it automatically without compromising power steering or braking.

Coasted into Death Valley from 5-6000 feet elevation. Some people say you lose your power steering & brakes. My car didn't have power steering or brakes, so didn't feel any different.
