From a brake pad longevity stand point. Is it better to press the brake harder for a shorter period of time or lightly ride the brakes?
My car appears to get its best gas mileage at around 2500 rpm. In town that is attained by leaving it in 4th gear ( manual tranny ) Shifting to 5th drops the rpm down to about 1600. So from a fuel economy stand point would it be better to leave it in 4th or drop it into 5th?
Thanks in advance.
