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

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.

Sounds just a bit dangerous. I coast in neutral on long slopes, but never would I turn the motor off.
