brand new wiki entry: Improving fuel economy

Just got this new wiki article started: Improving fuel economy. I've been noticing a lot of posts on this topic, especially in the engine forum.

This could potentially be a good "tips"-style article, similar to Body and exterior tips. Down the line, we can break the article into sections, like: "Engine design", "Trailering", "Driving habits", etc.

Feel free to add a fuel economy tip. Anyone can edit the wiki, you don't even need to login. Just click the "edit" link at the top of the page: Improving fuel economy.

I've been using the put it in neutral at a stoplight for quite awhile. I'm just hoping that it doesn't wear something out in my transmission faster by putting it in and taking it out of gear more often causing me to have to rebuild it.

I would assume it takes more gas to run at a higher idle in N, rather than leave it in D at lights. There is a set level of Air-to-Fuel ratio on the idle circuits, so, if the idle is higher...more CFM is needed...at the SAME ratio...more CFM equals more fuel used.
