Prius Question

I'm posting this for a friend of mine that owns a prius and he has a question about pulse and glide with the prius.

His question was is there any benefit to neutral coasting (vs. just coasting in drive) with a prius since he assumes fuel is not being used when the car is coasting in drive after pulsing the pedal and releasing the pedal. Because the prius switches to battery power when releasing the gas pedal is there any benefit to pulse and glide with the prius?

I'm really not up to speed on how the prius works but I told him my fellow ecomodder's would defiantly have an answer...thanks!
