On my car (mid size sedan, automatic transmission) I cannot control the rpm and load like I want to to maximize BSFC. Even so, accelerating at a moderate rate in the 2200-3000 rpm range and accelerating at less than 2000 rpm give the exact same MPG over a 1/2 mile stretch. I've repeated the test a few times.

I encourage others that have the right guages to test this also. Perhaps we can put to bed the "very slow acceleration gives best MPG" myth.
