PRLog - Jun. 27, 2011 - WILMINGTON, N.C. -- One of those technologies is deceleration fuel cutoff (DFCO). While the vehicle is decelerating or slowing down, fuel is automatically shut off to the Cruze's advanced Ecotec engine. When the driver accelerates, the fuel automatically begins flowing again and the vehicle accelerates as the driver commands. It's a seamless process that the driver and passengers don't notice.

The benefits: This technology increases fuel economy in the Cruze by up to 2 percent, depending on specific driving conditions and behavior. That means on a single tank of fuel, this technology contributes more than 17 miles of the overall range on the Cruze Eco model and more than 11 miles of range on the non-Eco Cruze models. It is an effective technology that helps keep money in a customer's pocket when at the pump.
"The Cruze is packed with fuel-saving technologies,"
How it works: DFCO is enabled when the driver's foot is off the accelerator pedal and the vehicle is coasting. Through integration of engine and transmission controls, the engine speed is carefully controlled under these deceleration conditions. Fuel automatically begins flowing back to the engine when the driver accelerates or when the engine speed approaches idle conditions.
This technology is on Cruze models with both automatic and manual transmissions.
Chevrolet recently announced that for 2012, Cruze models with the 1.4L turbo and six-speed automatic transmission will get 2 mpg better fuel economy. The Cruze Eco with an automatic transmission will deliver as much as 39 mpg on the highway compared with 37 mpg for the 2011 model. Cruze Eco with the standard six-speed manual transmission remains the most fuel-efficient gas-powered/
