I drive an ATX and when trying to accelerate to 50+ mph I feel it takes forever to get into the next higher gear. Is there any benefit to coaxing the car into higher gear by slightly letting off the gas around 30 mph or should I just let the auto transmission do its thing? Feel likes 2nd gear is really long when accelerating to higher speeds. Is one way any more economical than the other???
