Well, on my way home from work I was driving at a nice constant 40MPH. I then pushed on the brake. At first the car started to slow and I could feel the engine trying to fight it. After some more pressure on the brake, DCT clutch disengaged. I gave it more gas and the RPM's held at about 3500-3600. It never dropped to idle... I did this a couple of times to confirm, I'm not in the mood to abuse my car too much, this is the first time I tried it. Now back to my lazy driving style. I'm enjoying the hand calculated 40.1 MPG the past 2 tanks...
