Manual Shift Points/MPG

I have noticed that when I use manual mode with the gear shifter, the dash MPG indicator is mad high...like 23-27 mpg in city driving. I usually shift about every 5 mph except to 3rd gear and 8th gear which are hit or miss. Once I shift into 8th I usually don't downshift until the car does it for me. Has anyone else ever tried this? I know the dash MPG indicator is off but it is interesting to see.

Interesting. I've never used the manual shift to shift earlier than it normally would. Just the opposite....I use it so it'll hold the gear longer....for when I want it to stay in a lower gear, for better throttle response during "spirited" driving, or as certain situations in traffic may require. ;)

I'll experiment with it sometime.
