    Re: Ease

    Hi, guys

    So, my take is that:
    I can ease off the accelerator and
    I can ease up on the accelerator.

    Am I right ?

    Re: Ease

    I think both are physically possible and will provide the same amount of vehicle reaction!

    Re: Ease

    I would say ease off, it sounds good.

    Re: Ease

    Just ease must use, no any prepositions.
    ease : she eased it
    ease off : it eased off, because she eased it.

    Re: Ease

    I think "ease off"
    "Ease off" means "reduce pressure"
    is that oke ?
