It's not greater acceleration that matters but an open throttle, which reduces
pumping losses. But it's practically impossible to drive in a way to exploit
this effectively. Basically it involves flooring the accelerator but short
shifting at about 2000 RPM. Try it!
Filled cylinders are usually more effiecint than partly filled
cylinders. Flooring it and short shifting is not a problem except maybe
in first gear - not that I care to drive like that (I have an IS)
