    I think pulse and glide is still the best for fuel consumption - and that doesn’t include running on battery. :)

    Look ahead, anticipate slow downs so you can coast up to them, avoid excessive braking that squanders momentum. Keeping a generous following distance helps. Stay near the speed limit at most.

    Basic biz:

    1. Don't draft vehicles, trucks or whatever.
    2. Don't roll stops, play by the rules, do full legal stops and check for cross traffic and pedestrians.

    I stay about 1 1/2 seconds behind semi's and gain about at least 5 mpg.
    It makes you pay attention too. :)
