So, I'm getting slightly used to the Civic, and was wondering what tips y'all could toss in specific to manual transmissions. A lot of what I do was crafted for automatics - it's been nigh on 10 years since I've had a stick car - so I'm wondering what I'm behind the curve on for driving stick, especially since I'm not averaging much better in the Civic with the advantages of a 5-speed and manual steering vs. the Echo which had both. I'm well acquainted with when and when not to use DFCO. I've seen a benefit from using large throttle inputs and short shifting - better to go through all 5 gears, or rev higher and skip shift? Pulse and glide is a better option for when I get a battery I can trust, so although I understand the basics, I'd appreciate an applied set of tips. What about DWL? Better than using throttle position? That's one I fully and nakedly don't understand. And of course, anything else you'd care to throw out there would be welcome. Andrew, I'm calling you out. I know you know these cars at least as well as anyone... Short-medium term goal is to see 50mpg, and my drive is mostly freeway.
