    kung hindi alam ng driver paano i-optimize ang advantage ng M/T for fuel-economy, wala talaga difference.

    Just how much is the difference between a manual and automatic in terms of FC? Given the exact car model.

    Nice read: Transmission Efficiencies. MT, Auto, CVT. - Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com

    According to that post MTs are still the most efficient HOWEVER most of them are geared for acceleration and not efficiency. MTs also rev higher at highway speeds compared to ATs/CVTs. The CVT can pick the most efficient engine speed for a given load every time. Modern ATs with early torque converter lockups also negate the sliding clutch feeling of old ATs.

    The even thriftier MY'14 Hyundai Accent HB 6AT (updated from old 4AT) is 968K. The old Hyundai Accent HB 4AT is available (although til supplies lasts) at 868K.

    accent hb a/t 4 speed user here. before we're planning to get the m/t as well, but then sir niky mentioned before that the a/t is close to the efficiency of the m/t so we chose the a/t. ganda ng a/t niya kasi pag traffic d ka napapagod, and since it's diesel with VGT di siya mahirap i overtake sa traffic if needed, anjan agad yung power niya. for my fc, driving the a/t hb smoothly yields me 5.5L-6L/100kms, pag speedy gonzales mode namn i could muster 6.5L-7L/100kms, not bad i think, lalo na diesel siya.

    OT:

    Have you tried driving an 18 speed (hi/low) IH tractor head? 4th gear ang standing start.

    BTT:

    For city driving (majority) and the odd out of towner trip ... get an automatic.

    Boss CVT masarap nga "kumambyo" pero mas masarap pag free ang right hand mo! Dahil A/T Hahaha

    Imagine lalo na kung bagong sweethearts pa lang kayo, holding hands while driving for starters.
