My dealer suggests I use progressive shifting to improve my fuel
economy ... what is it?
Shift keeping rpm to a minimum and use only enough rpm to pick up the
next gear. Progressive shifting also reduces acceleration time, and
top gear is reached sooner because it takes less time to synchronize
gears during shifting and the engine is operating at its highest
