I said down to, that means from any engine speed above this point i.e. from 6500 rpm down to 1500 rpm.

No, below 1500 rpm the fuel cut would stop happening. I.e. you need to have sufficient vehicle and road speed, although I think it might be active down to 15 mph, i.e. that's the minimum speed when you could be running under the fuel shut off. However I don't know the exact thresholds, but its been discussed a myriad of times.

Aggressive deceleration fuel shut off (A-DFSO) cuts fuel when the throttle is closed and the car is in gear. Essentially you are not injecting any fuel and the momentum of the car is driving the engine as an air pump through the wheels. Where as in neutral you've disconnected the engine from the transmission and therefore have to burn fuel to keep it running.

However there are a few conditions that need to be met, such as the initial vehicle speed being sufficient/ load sufficient to support this condition. It appears to work down to 1500 rpm or so afaik.

raptor1956 I had 3 tanks in a row over 43mpg with the average for those 3 tanks and 1350 miles of over 44mpg. Of course, I was in Yellowstone where the max speed limit is 45mph...
