Default Eco mode not active much

Anyone see Eco mode stay on for more then
A couple seconds. Mine is only on when coasting
Down a hill or off throttle . This is hiway driving at 90 or 100
With cruse or not. Even city speeds only see
When coasting.

I use MDS on the highway only and, even with my recent changes, my Economy mode comes on quite regularly [surprisingly]....... but I'm not doing 90-100MPH

On my Longhorn I find that Eco doesn't seem to stay on very long. Even at moderate speeds on the freeway it turns off at the lightest of throttle applications.

Sometimes I wish I could just turn it on and it would stay on until I either turned it off or floored it.

I'm thinking he is referring to KMs per hour, remember he's from Canada Eh Mine's a 10 and stays in ECO mode alot at highway speeds while cruising on level roads.

The only way mine stays on for any length of time is if it is totally flat. Otherwise it goes in and out of ECO. Guess you'll have to move to Nebraska, pretty flat there. Just kidding.

I just got a Sport with an 8 speed on Monday. I was actually surprised at how often ECO is on. I would estimate that it's on for about half of my city driving and 3/4 of my highway driving.

You have to turn it on through your Radio and the settings. Once it is turned on then it will display in your lower left hand side of your EVIC. It is big and green, you won't miss it. Mine was off from the factory and I had to turn it on.
