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

You must be crazy as that isn't gonna save hardly anything but cause safety problems and maybe transmission problems in the future.

Nope. No need to. My stick shift car cuts off fuel flow to the engine when coasting.

No, it is dangerous to everyone. Stopping and steering times are substantially increased. If it's not illegal, it should be.

Power brakes, power windows, power steering and cut off the key? Only a fool would do it.

No. Stupid practice. In modern cars ECM shuts off fuel to injectors when coasting in gear.

No not ever with the vehicles of today's era. Years ago, back when regular steering and hydraulic brakes came about and then std.-shift vehicles were popular, there were times $$ were tight in ones pocket and gas was still a cost to be saved/spared.

EOC probably was a more common practice that resulted in making certain laws for areas of bad judgement driving, that happens even today, bad decisions even with High Technology at work........

Try driving 65 mph, turn off the engine and then turn it back on around 10 mph. KABOOM!
