My first vehicle was a manual with no tach, and I often had the music up. I drove barefoot so I could feel the revs of the engine, and I've carried the habit over.

I feel I have better fine control of the throttle - many struggle with staying in lean burn in the Insight, because after a certain throttle position it drops out and you have to feather it back in, but I've never had a problem.
