It would not surprise me a bit. I have not looked up the manuals fuel economy rating. That would tell the whole story. Eight speeds and the ability for the manufacturer to program the shift points makes automatics more fuel efficient than manuals. The days of 3 and 4 speed automatics is long gone, hence the reversal of which get better gas mileage.
