shifting vs. throttle

stupid thought i was having while driving today, and i could not come up with an answer. this would only work with a manual transmission i guess. lets say you are on an incline. what is better for the motor, gas mileage, etc....

more throttle in 5th gear at a lower rpm, or less throttle at a higher rpm in 4rth gear?

Remember your throttle controls RPM, not road speed. You need more throttle to reach that higher rpm in 4th gear to maintain equivalent speed.

For MPGs, more throttle in a higher gear is better. The engine runs more efficiently with less restriction from the throttle.
