Manual vs Automatic MPG difference Sign In

Presently drive a 2007 Toyota Corolla with manual transmission. Average ~34 MPG in city driving, which I really like. However; I have grown tired of driving a stick mainly due to the increased traffic in Austin and my knees aren't what they used to be.
Was thinking of getting a similar Corolla; hopefully a couple of years newer but automatic. Was wondering what the MPG difference would be, approximately?
Thanks.

I don't have the EPA estimated website at hand but you can look for it for almost all vehicles.


I say no difference of any significance with auto vs std transmissions. Some fair better! Hey - your choice but for me I can't be annoyed with shifting in city traffic as the most common use of a vehicle if a choice MPG up or down a little is still more on how the driver drives and the conditions at hand,

Probably around a one mile per gallon difference if you stay with the 1.8L.

That sounds pretty good. I guess long time ago the difference used to be bigger.
Thanks.

They did now some time ago. Now auto trans locks up and coasts better than much older stuff. In traffic I find it's easier on the car and engine too that shifting like crazy all the time never mind wear and tear on YOU!
