It basically tell you that you are using less gas. When it's on, you are getting more miles per gallon.

It helps train you to be less of a lead foot and thus increase your mpg. Driver's Ed teacher used to do this by asking us to pretend that there was an egg between our right foot and the pedal.

I hate sluggish performance from the Hemi. Sport mode and heavy foot for me. ECO be damned.

Surprisingly, I get a kick out of seeing ECO. In general I'm a more tame driver with the Jeep. Must be the AT, lower HP, and inability to take corners at more than 2x their rated speed. But it can tow :)

It's the icon that goes off when basically anytime you accelerate :)

I just thought the icon belonged on the hemi v8 vehicles with the mds and not on the v6.

Doesn't it also mean on the hemi that the V8 is running on four cylinders, when it goes off you are back to 8 cylinders?

Nope. V6 has it too.
