Does the "don't coaset in neutral" thing apply for manual cars too then?
ADFSO doesn't care what transmission is behind the engine. (ADFSO being agressive deceleration fuel shut off). So yes as long as you were moving at speed you are probably above the threshold where the engine will be driven by the wheels slowing down the car and using no fuel while coasting, however you will not coast as long as if you were in neutral due to driving the engine via the wheels instead of burning fuel at an idle rate. If you need to coast for a long long time then being in neutral may be more beneficial, but otherwise keep it in gear.
