Energy Efficiency as a Function of Suspension Tuning

Post

Hi all,
This topic has had me looking around and finding nothing online. What would you say is a more efficient setup for normal day to day driving between a hard sporty ride and a soft wallowy one? On one side a soft ride would be less hampered by obstacles but on the other a soft ride would have the car bounce a lot therby causing a loss of energy to damper heat. I'm sure there won't be a conclusive answer as this would be very dependant on specific road conditions but I am looking to get some insight on the matter. Thanks!
