I think this is the best summary of this thread and I completely agree.
Which is why basically I drive in D and use N when appropriate if I'm on a long drive and need to watch my miles. Unless I was in the city with a lot of stop and go, in which case I may use E or B. But even when I've done that I just tend to use D and leave huge space cushions in front of me and partial brake pedal. I find that this is the most comfortable way to drive the car and extremely efficient when done properly.
This past summer I made many 75 mile trips and had about 15 miles remaining, so that's not too shabby. So for me I don't think it's worth making it any more difficult.
And I would recommend this style to any driver of the i-miev who wants a basic simple answer to this thread.
