Can somebody answer this for me:
I live in Edmonton (Canada) and usually drive with MDS on. I find that "ECO" cycles between on and off quite frequently when doing city driving.
So... is it better to drive in 5th gear all the time? Or what about putting it into "Tow" mode, will that save gas? I have never used Tow Mode in my vehicle.
I'm averaging between 15.6 and 16.9 litres per 100 KM (and, I can honestly say it drives me nuts watching the gas economy go up and down all the time.
I have tried driving in 5th gear but only for a short distance (didn't know if it is okay to do so), and I didn't notice a gas savings.
So what should we be doing? Drive in 5th to disable ECO? Drive in TOW MODE to shorten up the shift patterns?
