Eco simply means your throttle input is less than 20%. I remember reading this a while ago. Where as MDS has certain parameters that must be met for engaging. So while Eco can be on, it doesn't necessarily mean that MDS is on. However, I do not believe that MDS can be on, and Eco not be lit up.

It is worth noting that I believe MDS will only be on in 0 torque situations (flat surfaces, ie. not pulling a grade, little-no acceleration). Admittedly, I don't have a way to describe it better than that, although 0 torque may not be the appropriate term.
