There is a huge craze for fuel efficient cars in the United States. The car companies are vying with each other to give their fuel economy numbers, 28 MPG (Miles per Gallon), 33 MPG e.t.c, e.t.c. But, the fine print in those advertisements says it all-- "Manual Transmission".

And yet, in spite of this craze and advertisements, cars with automatic transmission outsells the ones with manual transmission.

Grow up you Americans. Stop using automatic transmission; switch to Manual Transmission, save the earth and your fuel bills.
