Why is travelling in neutral for long distances (known as coasting) wrong?

A There is no engine braking
Try to look ahead and read the road. Plan your approach to junctions and select the correct gear in good time. This will give you the control you need to deal with any hazards that occur. You’ll coast a little every time you change gear. This can’t be avoided, but it should be kept to a minimum.
B It will cause the car to skid
C It will make the engine stall
D The engine will run faster
