also i am still lost on this mds after reading the explain mds thread
i here people say that eco light isnt mds it shows up next to the compass on the evic.
and there is a fuel saver light that shows when its mds. which i dont have or see.. or is what i said the mds light?
then i head people say eco mode is mds...
"Fuel Saver Mode
The FUEL SAVER MODE message will display above the
average fuel economy in the EVIC display. This message
will appear whenever MDS (if equipped) allows the
engine to operate on four cylinders, or if you are driving
in a fuel efficient manner.
This feature allows you to monitor when you are driving
in a fuel efficient manner, and it can be used to modify
driving habits in order to increase fuel economy."
AS OPPOSED TO:
"ECO / ECO-ON (Fuel Saver Indicator) — If Equipped
The ECO-ON indicator will illuminate when you are
driving in a fuel efficient manner and can be used to
modify driving habits in order to increase fuel economy.
The ECO display will toggle between ECO and ECO-ON depending on driving habits and vehicle usage. Press the
Odometer / Trip Odometer / ECO (Fuel Saver Indicator)
button to change the display from odometer to either of
the two trip odometer settings or the “ECO” display."
found out people with factory dual tips can notice it. mine is single exit system so i cant hear it.
i was reading the why does everyone hate mds, and gained some info.. but this is my first hemi, had a 89 ram w150 with the 318 it was a dog (3speed auto) had a 96 ram 2500 5.9 diesel auto was a nice truck but needed work. 14 cruze with the 1.8L it wasnt worth keeping..
but as long as i can get what my last ram got, which was 21mpg avg mostly highway.. i am happy with her.
blue hot rod-2011 dodge ram 1500 slt-2wd-auto has a hemi, 84k miles
