Re: Block Changing

I would say there are many different occasions you may use 1 - 3, sometimes for fuel economy, and sometimes for evasive action.

1 - Moving off on a downhill gradient (that’s not steep enough to move off in 2nd)

2 - Entering from a junction/roundabout and you have misjudged oncoming traffics speed, so instead of taking 2nd, you extend 1st, then into 3rd

I do not teach any block up gear changes as the "be all and end all" it’s to be used when appropriate to road and traffic conditions.

I have mentioned before, 2-4 or 3-5 are more common.

Re: Block Changing

I did wonder this myself, if your starting downhill, 2nd to start and move to 3 4 or possibly 5 or 6 depending on car.  Errrrrr it really does depend on the car if I went 1-3 in my car it would pull you forward with diesel torque into the distance.  If I did it in the 1.0 yaris, it makes sense acutally pulling out of a closed level junction onto a downhill road. 

To be fair I try and match the gears to what is necessary at the time.  I'm not sure I could list every gear change,

1-2 Used everyday!
1-3 level road onto downhill road
1-4 really not likely
1-5 very unlikely
1-6 I have no idea!

2-3 Everyday!
2-4 Everyday move off on down hill, open junction exiting down hill
2-5 used rarely, but possibly on extream versions of 2-4
2-6 Not sure about this one!

3-4 Everyday!
3-5 Everyday!
3-6 Everyday (if I have the option!)

4-5 Everyday!
4-6 Everyday!

5-6 if I had it everyday!

6-1 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
6-2 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
6-3 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
6-4 Trafficlight approach, acceleration, uphill
6-5 acceleration, uphill

5-1 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
5-2 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
5-3 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
5-4 Trafficlight approach, acceleration, uphill

4-1 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
4-2 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
4-3 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill

3-1 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill
3-2 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill

2-1 Trafficlight/junction approach, uphill

Any other ideas?
