INTERACTIVE DECEL FUEL SHUT-OFF (IDFSO) - WHAT IT IS AND DOES

Interactive Decel Fuel Shut-Off (iDFSO) is a software feature that expands opportunities for turning off fuel to the engine during deceleration events thereby improving fuel economy. The amount of fuel shut-off can be increased by keeping the engine speeds high enough (with fuel off) to prevent need for fuel rewet.
Improves both city and highway fuel economy
Fuel Saver Indicator Light will illuminate when iDFSO is active

Interesting,as long as it can be turned totally off. I'd have an accident paying to much attention to the display. Plus i'd get pissed seeing how bad my mileage actually is.

I have a question. Are the Dodge Nitro's equipped with a 4.0 Inline or a V style?

Trust me, that 4.0L is much better than the 3.7L that are in the Nitros. But it still fails to make you feel good when you hit the gas :(

what an absolute wank! lol..... you young fellas wouldn't remember the "economy meter" that was a feature of a lot of 80's cars, it was a glorified vacuum gauge. LOLOL This "new" feature reminds me of that.
