This is from the .pdf that Milous posted about the diesel engine:
"Eco Mode functions every time the vehicle is started. However, note that Eco Mode can be turned off when towing, off-roading or any time power is desired over efficiency."
So in a sense, the configurator is right. But I think it means only when you are actually towing something.
