The MDS on my truck feels more like the engine is missing on several cylinders--the wheel vibrates lightly and the engine sounds rough. The ECO light which indicates that it's in use only seems to come on when I've taken my foot 100% off the gas--flat, cruising on the highway on level pavement requires too much fuel to have it engage--so I'm not impressed. I read through the article describing the MDS functionality and it answered some of my questions, but I'm not enough of an engine buff to fully comprehend everything there--but thanks for the link!
