Q: How to bump start the Mirage? - Tutorial Wanted
I am a one week owner of a neat Mitsubishi Mirage in DE trim with manual transmission.
On my 7 miles daily commute, I am able to score a ~41 MPG (in-car display) on non-highway streets.
I've read about the bump start possibility in this forum for squeezing out more mileage after an engine off coast, but I wasn't able to get the engine on. If I put the key to ACC and let the car roll at around 15 mph, the Mirage only brakes a lot when I let the clutch gently engage into the 2nd gear.
Can anyone please describe how you bump start the Mirage in a tutorial-like manner?
