On my civic coasting in gear cuts of fuel (9999mpg) but it causes drag and will reduce the distance you can coast, coasting in neutral results in between 100 and 300mpg but you are free-wheeling and get better distance. When I am coming to an offramp, stop sign, yield, stop light etc. I will use in gear coasting (engine breaking) to slow down and use 0 fuel but if I am coasting down a hill I will put the car in neutral to extend the distance of my coast.

I hope this helps!
