Im pretty sure i see lowest consumption by P&G from 40-55 in the protege. I think the problem with shorter pulses ~5mph is the added time spent in transition.

Around town speeds would probably lug the engine, and fourth gear sucks more gas than fifth.

I get around with all pulses though, up to the limit with one steady accel, coast d0wn to around seven under, and pulse back to a few over.

Around town, i don't pay attention to cars behind me
Call channel five, get them broads over here, tell them of the tragedy of my trappedness.
