This may have been already discussed, but there is a thread on ecodriving at my local Peugeot forum, and someone wrote that accelerating with 80% throttle is efficient on gassers, but not diesels. Diesels should accelerate very slowly for fuel economy.
Is this true? I'm using the 80% rule on my turbodiesel and seem to be getting good FE, but maybe it could be better?

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
