I'm interest to know the difference in fuel consumption between Regular and Sport modes. Is there any data available?
With respect, you're obviously going to use more fuel if you drive spirited. If you're not constantly redlining, I would believe that the difference would not be too significant. Maybe 2-4 MPG difference based on driving habits.
Once a 6'er, always a 6'er.
