But if you run 6 tasks in the same 1 1/2 hours you will get 216 credits

Don't forget core count!

NBody: 6 tasks х 1 set of 8 CPUs yield 216 in ~1,5 hrs
Separation: 1 task * 8 CPUs yield 1816 in a same ~1,5 hrs

How did you decide that NBody are better for CPU than Separation?

Pointswise Separation tasks grants you more credits: 227 credits for about 1,5 hrs of 1 CPU
While Nbody 8 CPUs for 15 min only 36 credits,

That's actually quite frustrating 8*15=120 min CPU time for only 36 credits =( very very conservative
