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

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

No internal transmission lubrication stops, power assist stops, transmission then has no line pressure to compensate for regulation, cooling/parts within.

I'd think someone had to be very strapped for cash to try something like that or just plain stupid.
Seems to me if the ignition is turned off the steering column might just be locked as well...unless somehow they managed to disengage the locking device.
Sometimes you just can't fix stupid.

Power brakes, power steering, it can damage the transmission... And, oh, yeah - it's illegal.

Yes, I got 69 mpg once by doing that. It's annoying over long distances though and I won't do it then.
