Just to ensure understanding....
ECO mode does not equal MDS activation. It definitely promotes it more than Sport mode but MDS activates when its conditions are met. ECO mode is not one of them.
The conditions include but are not limited to:
In general...steady speed, low acceleration and shallow grade climbing conditions
...speeds from around 20 mph to 80 mph (higher reported)
...more active at highway speeds and on level ground
...engine operating temperature must be at least 130 degrees
...oil pressure above 45 psi
...transmission must be in 5th gear at speeds above 35-40 mph
