ECO Pro isn't a magic button that saves fuel. Gains on ECO Pro depend on how you drive.

The OP is talking about the Eco Pro mileage savings display number (+1, +2, etc) and asking why it jumped to a higher number after coding.

I've seen that number do some strange things, so it's probably not related to the coding. It would be interesting to test to see if it happens again after coding.

Doh!

I get it. I was thinking it jumped after DRIVING after coding.

I have also seen that number change dramatically without coding. Its like it's based on top of other data sensors that for some reason get changed unrelated to the actual fuel consumption in a way the Eco pro calculation didn't anticipate. For me I think it's a result of changing driving modes.
