Anybody have a rule of thumb for difference in speed at start and end of pulse. It seems to me that anything less then 10mph makes it inefficient. I.E. I try to top out at 60mph and then glide down to 45mph. This on a 65mph road with little traffic. Only coasting down to 50mph seems ineffecient. If I pop the clutch put the throttle where I think the LOD should be about 75 -- by the time the SG starts reading its back to 60 and time to glide again.
Any community wisdom here?
