I love starting my Civic out of my driveway in 3rd or 4th, as it just needs a slight roll to get started, then I can pretty much let it idle it's way up to 15mph without touching the gas... it's probably not good on the engine, but o'well.

Once I get to 15mph, I can be in 3rd gear idling anyway (1000RPM) so I just give it some light gas and go.
