boy, that's bad news for honda hybrid drivers using a stickshift -- I
spend ALL my downhill time coasting...

(it's fun seeing how many cars I pass rolling down the waldo grade)

Sorry, accidental send. Anyway after the downhill run the road goes uphill
steeply enough to stop any car. Each car was started from a dead start and
allowed to coast down one hill and up the other. A marker was placed where
they came to a stop, showing which car had the least rolling resistance and
most momentum on the down hill run. Top speed was probably 15 mph or so. Of
course, coasting downhill is illegal in California, but statutes of limitations
are now in play. It was a fun, safe and revealing.
