i don't think many people have been driving manuals very long or just have no clue about cars and how they work or working on them
seriously have nobody skipped gears to save gas, you do not need all the gears all the time, as long as you aren't stalling the engine or riding the clutch your fine
and skipping gears does absolutely zero damage, it actually helps by causing less wear
Sorry, don't know how to quote. But I can't wrap my head around this skip shift. I have skipped gears before to save on gas, but the V8 camaro tells you to shift way too early from 1st to 4th. When I shift when I am "told" by the car, the RPM is barely at 1,000. Is something broken? I usually just step on it, or slow down to allow to shift into fourth, or second. Any advice?
