How to best drive stick for mpg's
I got a new 2008 Ranger XL, 2.3L, rwd, 5speed manual
I'm testing the best mpg's on her, and want to know if it's bad for the truck when I shift a bit earlier and get a bid of vibration
Those who drive stick should know what I'm talking about. The tranny and clutch are all perfect, it's just the driving method. Of course 1st gear doesn't have this, but if I shift to other gears at low enough rpm's to save on gas, there can be some vibration (not grinding, just a low vibration) until the rpm's pick back up. I would usually shift around 2k rpm, but any earlier and I'll get that vibration, especially in 3rd-5th gear. Also, if I shift to 3rd for a turn, instead of 2nd.
Is this a good practice or bad?
