550 Power

Just wondering: how many 550 owners with the Sport Pkg drive with the vehicle in Sport mode on a regular basis. Took my 11 year old grandson for his first ride in the 550 today. Needless to say, he was very excited but when we made it to the highway and I went to Sport mode and goosed it a little he was so impressed that he began making plans as to what he would do to make money so he can buy his own 550 when he grows up

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.
