Logic says 4WD saps more energy from the drivetrain, thus it will rob you of an extra couple miles per gallong.

Do manual transmission cars or trucks really get better gas mileage and cost less to maintain than automatics?

Two things - repairs cost less on manuals because all you're really dealing with is a clutch instead of a whole transmission and manuals typically get better gas mileage than an automatic because you are in full control of the gear you're in.Most definitely! They are better all the way around. Esp. when it comes to repairs. Learning to drive a stick just takes practice.This all depends on the driver. Yes, a manual transmission does cost less to replace. A manual transmission has the availibility of better gas mileage depending on the drivers decision to run a higher gear whenever possible. Higher gear = better gass mileage, less acceleration....less fun .
