    I realized yesterday that my SG has all the info to automatically do pulse-n-glide and other fuelimproving techniques (driving-with-load) if connected to a CC. Combined with an altimeter to measure relative altitude differences and a GPS to learn your routes, it could do P-G which is optimsed to the terrain much more efficiently than a human. After-mounted cruise actuators are easy to install after all. The problem would then be to set the vehicle into neutral.

    kwj I hypermiled this

    Now, if you could hook that all up to an intelligent camera to keep me on the road, and radar to keep me from running into others, I could take a nap on the way to work!
