COMMENTS

Start with the empty sequence. For n = 10, 11, 12, ... do the following. Let the decimal expansion of n be abcd...efg, say. Append the numbers ab, bc, cd, ... ef, fg to the sequence.
The offset is slightly misleading since for n > 99 the index n is in no direct relation with the number whose digits are used to produce a(n), in contrast to A040115 where all digitdifferences of n are concatenated, and leading zeros don't appear. For example, a(100) = 1 and a(101) = 0 are the two differences between the digits of 100. Similarly, a(100 + 2k) corresponds to the difference between first and second digit of 100 + k. Therefore, a(120) = 0.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2019

EXAMPLE

From M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2019: (Start)
The first term is the difference between digits of 10, which is 1.
The second term is the difference between digits of 11, which is 0.
The 100th term is the difference between the first two digits of 100, 10 = 1.
The 101st term is the difference between the last two digits of 100, 00 = 0.
The 120th term is the difference between the first two digits of 110, 11 = 0: Here "leading zeros" are preserved, in contrast to A040115 where all digitwise differences of any n are concatenated to one term, and leading zeros disappear.
(End)
When we reach n = 371, for example, we append 4 and 6 to the sequence.
