I have done several road trips and played with this option. IF you keep the speed at 65 MPH or lower and don't use the AC you will see a big difference. I have gotten 38 MPG on some trips. When cruising above 65 MPH or street driving in Eco Pro mod I have seen no better MPG than in any other setting.
