I did a quick test on a .6 mile flat stretch between a red light and a stop sign. Every run was made in the same direction of the stretch.

"A" runs (Granny runs): Slow pace, egg under foot acceleration, shifting at 2000 rpm and finally resuming CC at 40 mph in 5th gear.

"B" runs (Jackrabbit runs): Quick acceleration (75% LOD), shifting just over 3000 rpm and finally resuming CC at 40 mph in 5th gear.

A1 39.1 mpg
B1 45 mpg
A2 39.8 mpg
B2 44.7 mpg
A3 39.5 mpg
B3 45.1 mpg

"A" runs average: 39.47 mpg
"B" runs average: 44.93 mpg

Test for yourself, you'll see.
