Nice data, but which method nets the best MPG, higher load uses the least gas, but also goes the least distance, given the same glide afterwards, you would end up needing more pulses on a given trip.

Assuming the average speed of the pulse is 1/2 way between the begining speed and end speed of the pluse, x the time you could get distance covered, then using the fuel used figure out which is most efficient?

I think then you have to factor over a given distance say 20 miles as more P&G cycles of one method vs different number of P&G cycles at other accelration rates.
