    Red face Freewheeling

    I know we are not supposed to do it but I seem to be freewheeling quite a bit lately. On the way to work there is a gentle incline and "Babe", our Veccy glides down at 700 revs for about 2 miles and petrol consumption has reduced. In fact going down to Amesbury on the 303 last weekend you can free wheel for miles and miles, providing there is not a lot of traffic.

    Does anyone else Freewheel??

    It uses more fuel making the car keep it ticking over than it does coasting down hill in gear.

    Hey, you may be right.
    Found this link http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010...ds-year-petrol

    A lot is just plain common sense but with fuel so expensive and a possible save of £800 per year I'll take it on board. Definitely worth the read.
