I made an incorrect assumption that you were closer to idle. Apparently, the 500 RPM thing isn't true either. That's not something I've tested, but something I've been told by "reputable" people.

Taller gears are definitely the way to go, but DFCO still doesn't usually hold a candle to Neutral Coasting, and it definitely doesn't hold anything against EOC.
