10-20 - 2nd gear
20-30 -3rd gear
30-40 - 4th gear
40-50 - 5th Gear
The above is typical manufacturer recommendation. This leads to Lugging and lower FE. Don't bother about Gear 1 it should be used only to start or when you come to halt. For most conditions you start with 1 and switch to 2. Switch to 3 only after 30 and 4 th gear only after 40km and to 5th gear closer to 60kmph. This is what I meant one needs to be in a gear lower than what is recommended by the manufacturer. Better recommendation is maintain an RPM >1600. If you have RPM meter to check this out.
Hope this clarifies.

Re: Migrating from Petrol to Diesel CRDI cars:How to drive better ?
Is it better to let the RPM rise in a lower gear (to avoid clutch use) or is the proper way to saving clutch / engine to upshift to a higher gear and bring down the RPM?
I am confused on this aspect.
