What’s the consensus on shifting your auto transmission into neutral at traffic lights?? Theoretically it should save some fuel, is it noticeable? Do you do it? Does it wear the box quicker?

Keen to hear some thoughts. :)

I've always done it, definitely would save fuel over time. Plus there's less vibration when sitting at the lights for a while

Yep I do it too. Takes the stress off the trans.

I kick it into park on a regular basis. Gives your right foot a break for a min.
