Default Re: B vs D

Let's keep this simple: "B" is used on long downgrades as an alternative to riding the brakes. Don't use it in normal driving because it will reduce MPGs. (Nuttmeg44, I don't know where you live but there's probably no city in the US where "B" is needed. Driving in the Rockies, yes. In this context "need" = "the brakes would get too hot if you didn't use B".)
