I would say group Curaja would be the most efficient.

mp wise i would say curaga considering two curagas=1 curaja and the diff in mp is more then twice what curaga costs
some people just dont like being wrong so the make out every thing that some one says as wrong jst to prove them selves right

Out of battle NOT a spell but just use a Cottage for 100% HP and MP restoration IF you can and those revive dead PCs.

Else Curaja on all out of battle (and summoning Ashura) for a spell that's even stronger then Curaja IN battle.

Yes but cottage doesn't work in dungeons unless your at a save point.

as in the most basic

wastes the least MP overall
It is, as some admiral once said, a trap.

Taken from the Algorithm FAQ (http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/615911-final-fantasy-iv-the-complete-collection/faqs/54945):

"The most important tip that you will ever read is healing outside of battle.
Potions are always the most effective outside of battle. Cure is also the
most effective spell outside of battle. The formula for any Cure spell
outside of battle is...

(Will Power/8 + 2) * (Will Power/2 + Base Spell Power)

Cure3/Curaga and Cure4/Curaja is not as powerful, even though Cure4 heals
a character to the max, regular Cure can heal up to 911HP for 3MP, which only
requires 12 castings to heal 9999HP. This is 4 less MP than Cure4. So if
you wanting to conserve Rosa's MP and trying to use it wisely, you will benefit
most from casting Cure outside of battle and equipping anything that increases
her Will Power. Just imagine what 3MP can do for you. Note that this only
applies outside of battle, as you want to use the strongest Cure spell in

As an extension of this thought, Cure3/Curaga is the best spell to use in
battle (unless you're desperate for Cure4/Curaja). Cure3 heals 9x more than
Cure for only 6x the MP. That's a bargain for HP healed. Cure4 (when split)
heals only 2x more than Cure3, but costs a little more than 2x the MP of Cure3."

TL;DR Version: Use Cure when you are NOT in battles, and Curaga when you ARE in battles. In both cases, the higher your Will stat, the more effective the spell will be.
