In the extreme mileage competitions they only accelerate to 25ish mph before killing the enging when they pulse and glide. The idea behind it is that the lower the speed the lower the air resistance and the farther you can glide before you have to turn the engine back on. These are the cars that get into the thousands of miles per gallon.
