+1 to Rajan. Perfect.
J Ravi's explanation is the most appropriate one. You need to control the car, not save fuel while down hill. The driving on plain roads and on hilly roads is totally different from each other. Earlier it used to be Hill-Licences for the drivers who were supposed to drive in hilly areas.
Drive safe while belted.
wow, this is a learning for me too.
Actually people think that if they put the car in neutral they are saving fuel. But its vice versa. More fuel is wasted in this process. Instead if you just keep the car in gear and take the foot off the accelerator then the injectors get cut off and dont dump fuel into the combustion chambers.
By doing this not only you save fuel, but also control the car better as the reduction box effect aids more control.
