<<You have an influential member on your side in this discussion.  None
other than John Twist.  
He has postulated the argument that it takes a certain amount of
mechanical "effort" to run the overdrive, which may negate any mpg
savings and/or lessening of the wear and tear on the engine.>>

So by that theory, the post 68 cars would be worse off than the early non
synchro trans cars, because the early trans with smaller shafts and less power
drain would have less effort and wear than later all synch cars?
