to get from 2nd to 5th, u have to use the 2nd gear mutch longer, wasting fuel for reving the engine. i use every single gear asap.
skiping gears is a good help for drivers, who are afraid of lower revs. so they can learn about the performance.
and maybe its good for lazy drivers.

but, in some cars i would skip 1st gear, usually.
