If you track your MPG and get consistent numbers, you can easily try EOC and see how much difference it makes. 1/2 to 3/4 mile at a time sounds worth it to me. If you can estimate the total potential coasting distance with the engine off, add that distance to your miles and recalculate a tank to see the difference.
