Engine braking throws away energy just like conventional braking; both will reduce your fuel economy.

Welcome, Techie. With modern fuel injected engines, engine braking will often put you into DFCO mode, whereas using the brakes may not. In DFCO the engine uses no fuel at all. As I said earlier in the thread, avoiding the need to brake, by anticipation and lifting off early gives better FE.
