revised Why does higher acceleration minimize a car's fuel consumption?
clarifying constant with respect to time, and shorter time vs. distance

Good point about the constant energy used by systems regardless of the vehicle acceleration.

I'm not asking about what happens after you reach a target speed--meaning for the purposes of the question, braking is irrelevant. Also, the question is not about maintaining speed--it's about reaching a speed. You may just want to delete your answer.

Rate of acceleration has no impact on the amount of time I push the brakes; and increasing the rate of acceleration certainly does not reduce the amount of braking needed. Cruise control also has nothing to do with acceleration, unless you're implying that one should use cruise control to increase the speed rather than your foot. Regardless, my question isn't about how to improve fuel economy, it is about the physics factors at play causing quicker acceleration to result in better fuel economy.

@Jaime I think we need a grant to study this one.

I believe we need a beer-physics tag.
