Re: [DML] Best way to shift for better fuel economy?


As I know it is better not to skip any gears. Use all and use the  
highest possible gear. I use 3th or 4th for city cruising (50kph) and  
5th outside from city. I think, the best rpm for the Delorean is  
around 1800-2000 if you want the best fuel economy.
