Interesting. My car is manual and diesel. I'm experimenting between pulsing and grinding (nise phrase ) and also which gear to use. Higher gear, lower RPM means I sometimes have to prod harder to maintain speed and as the Diesel is fuel controlled that means more fuel going in. But a lower gear means higher engine speed, less fuel but more cycles.

Pulsing is harder as the roads here are very heavy on traffic, and there is usually some muppet in a van about an inch or so off my rear end.

I shall have to practice technique more to maintain momentum

Thanks guys.
