It all depends....

On aero drag, vehicle mass, rolling resistance, gearing, and the shape/size of your BSFC sweet spot.

Even then, you'd need some heavy math and/or computer modeling to obtain optimal pulse/glide target speeds.

I think the best quick-and-dirty attempt would involve picking speeds that keep the engine in or near the low SFC island for as much time as possible.
