I always go to neutral. It's a little less safe, but if you're seriously hypermiling, you're spotting pretty far ahead on the traffic, so you're working with a bigger "traffic picture" than the typical driver. Fewer surprises = more time to anticipate and get your gear back.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
