I've done several tankful runs to figure out what works for me... For me, I get the best mileage when I Jack rabbit start to get up to speed, and coasting to stoplights. If its gonna turn yellow, and I can't make it, I just stand on the clutch and brake. But If I can, I drop it in third and go.
My average tank like this gets me 350 miles around town stop and go, if I did it the sunday driver way where I ease up to speed I only get 300 miles to the tank. Next time your at a light, reset your eco gauge, and just as it turns green and try a jack rabbit start, vs a long drawn out crawl to 55mph. Getting to the sweet spot in mpg faster means longer at that sweet spot. Taking forever to get there means it is going to take that much longer to average out to the mileage you prefer.
