consider a thought experiment: coasting downhill with the foot off the accelerator with an automatic tranny. what would happen if you shifted to "3" or "2"? would the sudden jump in rpm's require fuel? does the tranny affect fuel or is it governed exclusively by the engine? does the tranny bear the load of decelration or is it the engine?
