So whats up with this whole shift thing?

So Im new to having to shift and I was wondering if it is bad to shift from 2nd to 4th or 5th to save on gas or should I just shift 1 2 3 4 5.

no you can skip gears... just when you're shifting down... don't skip too many...

not bad at all, that is if you are driving at the appropriate revs. if you try to shift into 5th at like 2000 revs in 2nd, it's not a good idea. i do 1-2-5 shifts a lot when i accelerate quickly. although i find it more fun to go through all the gears. hey, that's why i got a manual.
