which motor setting are you using?

I use the SMART version. My AWD V-6 seems to get about 17 mpg city. Seen 25 mpg highway. I was able to get better with the ECO setting. But I don't like the way it operates around town on that setting. We only use ECO on the highway if the SMART doesn't put it there for me.

I got an indicated 31 mpg on a 250 mile trip a fee weeks ago according to the lie o meter. In reality it was probably closer to 29 mpg but still really good considering like 75 miles of that was at 80 mph and I was in like 15 min of stop and go traffic.

The pic sucks as something was on my lens.

I've seen as high as 29 on the dashboard during highway, and highest actual long interstate trip mileage was 28.

Run in 'comfort' mode since the other modes are just too irritating (lugging or holding 3rd too long or never going into 8) - comfort should be labeled 'normal'.
