Iíve used eco mode a couple of times. The last time I was headed to Virginia International Raceway (2 hours SSW of Richmond). The last stretch of road is state road 58. Speed limit is 60mph and itís rigorously enforced by the VA State Police! The road has infrequent stoplights. I put him (Gerhardt) into eco mode and cleared the mpg readout. For about 40 miles I averaged almost 36mpg! Yeah, he had the pep of an old Volkswagen with a missing spark plug but it interesting to see technology at work. Oh, he averaged about 4mpg at the track!
