Did some research for ya (and me lol)

* Settings
* Display
--- * Page down
* Fuel Saver display (last one on second page)

Its on the radio. You can toggle it there and it shows up on the EVIC, bottom left corner - green ECO turns on when in ECO mode.

I think this only turns on or off the ECO light in the EVIC, I don't think I actually stops the truck from using ECO mode (MDS). You would most likely need a tuner to turn it right off.

On the EVIC display between the tach and speedometer it will light up "ECO" near the top of the screen when you are driving easy(it's basically a glorified vacuum gauge). You can turn this option on/off in the menu options in the EVIC(need to be in park, I believe, to make changes).
