No, but you get a accurate assessment of the whole package.. In my experience you won't use all 8 gears out of eco mode unless you are going about 55 mph, where as eco mode you go into 8th at 40ish, if you need more power you can always give it more gas causing a downshift, but from what I see out of 8th gear the mileage drops rapidly for every gear less that 8th.
