In the old days the difference between manuals and autos was huge , both in performance and FE.
But over the last 15 years in particular the auto's have improved a lot in both departments.

I enjoy both , but for different reasons. and although manuals still have the upper hand , I wouldn't feel too guilty in owning a modern auto.

Hmmm, maybe this is why:

Translation: Having been around "harcore" TDI and Prius owners, both (in general overall terms, I have not seen this on this forum) are a pompus and "my way/no way" kind of folks that flock together.
