    i agree ... in my experience, after using it for a few years, i developed that light foot habit, got the feel of how the car behaves, and eventually doing good fuel economy without having to look at the gauge

    yup, its a good tool to help one develop a good habit ... and it applies on MT or AT, sir a_y

    one can only wish, with all the electronic wizardry installed on cars these days, that every car have this fancy digital km/li readout to help drivers conserve fuel (as some have already done)

    sa conventional AT diba you're still at the mercy ng torque converter? kaya di mo mmacocontrol ang up and down shift...

    yup ... but you still have control of vacuum ... regardless of gear the AT selects, keeping vacuum at 'high' (with your pedal) will translate to low fuel consumption

    and the only way to keep vacuum 'high' is a light foot

    Just ask your suking car accessory store for prices for the vacuum gauge and installation cost.

    Nope, no effect whatever type of gasoline engine you have.
