DFCO is only good if you want to slow down or control speed going down a steep hill. Glide in neutral! I rarely use pulse and glide on flat roads. I haven't found it to be much benefit in a light, underpowered car. On flat roads, i just cruise at about 45 MPH. Most of my gliding/coasting is either downhill or to stops. If there's nobody behind me, I'll coast to a stop sign without touching the brake pedal. Engine off.
