This would have made a great poll :

A. from top gear, at about 20 mph, accelerate very slowly, just enough to keep the speedometer rising until I reach my cruising speed. Sometimes this may take up to a minute. Watch vacuum gauge and keep vacuum as high as possible, usually above 5 inches.

B. from top gear, at about 20 mph, accelerate moderately hard, without letting the trans downshift, until I reach cruising speed. Obviously this will happen quicker than one minuet as in scenario A. Watch vacuum gauge, but under this technique the gauge would go to zero.

C. A and B are equal

D. Other
