As I was driving my sweet thing today, I wondered if you could be in neutral at 60 mph. I can put the stick in neutral and roll. Can you do that with a paddle or do you have to go to first before neutral?

Indeed (not too sure why you would do such a thing though), and unlike a Smart (which will refuse to switch a gear back in until you are fully stopped), the F1 box will re-engage the appropriate gear if you pull either paddles from neutral.

I use neutral quite a bit while cruising around town. Once I'm up to speed and I see there is a red light ahead of me, in neutral I go until I'm stopped and need to get going again. Why? Saves gas. I'd rather be idling down the road at 950rpm than 1,500-2,000rpm. Over the coarse of few hundred miles of city driving it adds up.

I’m not sure why Bart does it but I know his beast must be a lot thirstier than mine.

pull both paddles backwards at the same time and you are in neutral, so i assume you can do that also when you are driving
You're right. It will move on nuetral. That's what I do when I want to blip the trottle when passing a crowd outside a nightclub. :lol:
