Fuel Saving Tips

Most efficient manual shifting

Saab did testing years ago and found that most fuel efficient shifting was, (once the engine is at operating temp), to upshift normally to 3rd gear, than rev to slightly above normal 4th gear level, and shift directly into 5th gear. It has worked well for me in many years of driving. Make smooth, deliberate 3rd to 5th shifts, pausing slightly in neutral as you shift.
