I agree with this. I experimented myself with two full gas tanks. I reset the Avg MPG on the computer every time I filled the tank.

Gas tank 1: Usual weekly driving using only Manual Mode-> 22.4 MPG
Gas tank 2: Usual weekly driving using only D Mode-> 23.1 MPG

All in all, not a MAJOR difference but hey, just my results. I also noted that I was getting the 'Current MPG' on the dsah up to the high 30s and 40s using D only and when I tried to do it with Manual mode it was extremely hard (city driving). I also wish I would of went MT but, It gets annoying in bumper to bumper traffic.
