Good point . I have done both and don't think the difference is that much ...but there will be a little less friction maybe if engine is still in idle I agree . It doesn't change the point about EOL and Autos .
Out of interest what would happen if you slowly pulled the fuel shut off ?
Could it reduce fuel flow so you could keep engine on during auto and maybe gain some benefit .... or does it just stop the fuel instantly?
