Gears, gears, gears... No need to use the brakes until you need to come to a stand still and crawling, 16 times the thinking distance, not 4... No more than 10% throttle is not necessary just simply change up when you need more speed
Momentum, think well ahead... Keep it going while planning what next. When you have to stop... pull away with very little throttle and in second gear at least, even third on the flat... it will go!
High gears and let the engine labour up hill and low gears down hill use the engine braking in gear...
Come on... It isn't difficult, honest
