Auto vs Manual Fuel efficiency
I saw somewhere online that auto cars are more fuel efficient than manual cars. But some people told me I'm wrong. Can someone clearify this topic that is driving me mad?

Weight reduction is key. Remove the roof of the manual.

The for sale section is creeping closer.

I heard manual was more efficient cause you can control the revs and gearing more efficiently... but hey maybe that was with old auto's not new

I'm definitely getting a better return than autos on my 335i manual.. averaging 9l/100 with mixed driving.. but the 8-speed auto is not bad at all

RE: Auto vs Manual Fuel efficiency
On the older 328i/330i E46 the auto is definitely less fuel efficient than the equivalent manual. On the diesels i have found them to be much the same. I had two E60 530d's (2005 and 2008) in auto and now drive a 2005 530d six speed manual and the consumption is about the same on average. Have done similar 4000km trips up to Gauteng/Durban/Bloem and back to Hermanus with all three cars at different times and over the 4000kms the average was around 16km/litre on all three. That is tank to tank and not OBC, as the OBC is not very reliable generally.

RE: Auto vs Manual Fuel efficiency
Unless you have a new car with an auto box with 7/8 gears, a manual is more efficient.

RE: Auto vs Manual Fuel efficiency
Forget the transmission, the driver and driving style will always remain the most crucial part in determining fuel consumption.

WithStu I had two almost Identicle E90 330d - and the manual was conciderably more effcient. The Auto was a so called upgrade with much lower kms and loads of extras but at the end of the day it was not worth it and now I detest Auto 3 series. Thumbdown
