One friend says that, Do not run 1st gear so long time, change it ASAP, My other friend says that , wait till until vehicle reach some speed and then change it in to 2nd I saw my another office mate change all the 4-5 gear withing first 50 m but still vehicle speed around 20 kmph. As fuel consumption has strong relationship with the driving habits , pls tell me the best way to I need to practice.
