Why not just adjust your speed to let them in? The impact on your mileage is beyond minuscule. Very rarely do I need to do anything other than tap the brakes or accelerate modestly to let someone in. Maybe once every 5k-10k highway miles I'll get someone merging at 45mph where I end up braking for maybe a second instead of just tapping them.
