You should do best in an auto by acelerating as fast as possible without delaying transmission upshifts. This gives you the highest practical load, which in turn gives you best BSFC. If you can't stay in top gear (converter locked) then pulse (engine on) and glide. No engine off when moving in an auto, or you could hurt the transmission.
