comment Does Downshifting (Engine Braking) Cause Extra Wear and Tear?
Indeed I am, but yes also UPshifting early when accelerating it's a TDI and I believe the logic is that when the engine is being turned kinetically the fuel consumption is brought to zero by the electronics. Therefore the longer this is the case the less fuel will be consumed.
