First, if your car is burning 1gph at idle, you have issues to start with. My 4cyl Vibe at idle burns .15 gph, in order to get up to 1gph, I need to be cruising @ 55mph @ 2200 rpm with a LOD of 29.

Next, I don't how you can drive 15-25mph anywhere in the US unless you live in Omish country and only have to contend with horse drawn buggies.

With that said, my auto seems to like the speed range of 35-40mph where is sees mpg's of close to 80mpg.

Best suggestions to disprove your own theories is obtain one of the non OBT tools being developed/sold here and tweak your own vehicle.
