You should learn to be calm....my fuel comp is reading 50.5mpg now and seeing how I do a lot of town work....that's pretty good  :)

I think that's what Opti meant by 'better' ;D (There's a joke in here about 'teens being better', but I'll leave that for someone else ;D)

If by 'always in the right gear' you mean forever changing up regardless of rpm/boost etc... then yes, they're always in the right gear ::)

If by 'always in the right gear' you mean forever changing up regardless of rpm/boost etc... then yes, they're always in the right gear ::)
They also hold the gears longer than you would in a manual, and you canít footle around at 11-1200 revs like I used to in my manual astra. When driving gently, my auto box is always between 1500-2200 and changes up or down between those ranges.

they're in whatever gear the programmer decided is the correct gear for NOW. But it's a reactive mechanism, so you can't rely on it being in the correct gear at the right time. You can decide to hold onto a low gear for longer than is normal because you judge that it will be needed; an automatic can't.

Yes it is.....manual override of an automatic gearbox.

My car is an 8 speed auto with paddles. :)
