All the time................
It depends on your Idling Speed and your Peak Torque RPM.
The closer the better.
While going OTR in my CJ3B (carburetted) I increase the Idling Speed by approx 100RPM.


PS - The Chennai T-Bhpians are welcome anytime for a demo!

I also tried it with my Jeep(It has a Toyota 2-C turbo engine.) in the first and second gear(I feel it could have also moved in the third).

This can be done with any vehicle with huge low end torque and of course short power band.

I do it all the time with my Safari when i am in bumper to bumper traffic.

The key is to release the Clutch slowly and beast will keep moving so it relieves the other foot used for accelerator.

And most of diesels have this phenomenon.

my indica can climb inclines by itself in first and second. I guess it has something to do with the way the cars are tuned

My swift diesel does that as well, in fact if I put it in 4th or 5th, and brake so that the rpm tries to go below 1000, the engine actually tries to increase the rpm on its own.

It's like you are pressing the accelerator pedal. If you put the car into a gear that's too high for the speed, the car will accelerate on its own, until it gets to around 1000rpm.

It's the way the ECU has been tuned, i.e. it doesn't want the engine to run much below 1000rpm.

IMO, it's not a big deal at all.

Nothing unusual that is the usual method to drive Safari in bumper to bumper Bangalore traffic and it crawls on the slopes such as flyovers or other inclines.
