The only advantage the auto has over the manual (that cannot be made up for by shifting technique) is the size of the highest gear. The auto's 4th gear is a little larger than the manual's 5th gear. It simply means that you *may* see a slight fuel economy improvement on the highway with the auto. However, you will easily be able to make up for that by shifting more conservatively in the city.
