rpm ~ no significant effect on mileage

I'm interested in your tests of coasting at 1 rpm, and how they support your theory that coasting rpm makes no significant difference to mileage. Likewise, please post some evidence that 3000 rpm, for example, is no worse for mileage then 1500 rpm, and whether this applies to gas use when idling at a stop, as well as when coasting.
