Why is the gas mileage on the automatic better then on the manual. This just doesnt make sense. Does anybody know the answer?

also the auto shits lower than most people would if they were driven the manual
That will depend on the throttle position. If you floor it, it'll go up to redline before it shifts.

Actually, city mileage will probably be about the same, maybe better for the manual. It's on the highway that the auto will get better mileage.
