ECO mode
 
I have 2011 overland summit V8 .I have volant CAI...my drive has been short to and from to work mostly...did not see any much improvement on gas mileage.
I had been leaving the QL on auto mode all the time ,but since the weather has been nice I started driving for a change with QL on sport...I noticed the ECO light stays on longer and my recent trip 175 miles on highway It averaged 20.4 MPG..it is just my observation.
Has anybody noticed the same.
Thanks.

When I first got mine I thought I noticed the same thing, but have not tried a whole tank in sport mode. I'm due to fill up tomorrow, I'll give it a try over the next week and report back.

Re: ECO mode
 
Reporting back... I got almost 1 MPG better driving in sport mode. (19.1 compared to 18.2 in Auto) Definitely not the most scientific test, but I was sure to keep it in sport mode for the entire time. Many things can affect this, and I can't say I drove the exact same routes both weeks, they were very close though. Interesting none the less. And sport mode is so much more the way I think it ought to be, regarding shift points anyway.
