And while we're at it, are the flower petals supposed to change with driving conditions? I've yet to see anything but all 5 petals.
I received your PM, dorough, thanks! I'm looking into it now.

The flower pedals are part of the EcoMode operation. This system assists the driver in more efficient driving by monitoring: shifting, driving speeds and anticipation of start/stop (traffic conditions). Better economy is displayed by more solid pedals in the flower graphic; the more efficiently you drive, the
more pedals will be earned. Resetting the average fuel economy value will reset the EcoMode also.

• Anticipation: adjusting your vehicle’s speed and the distance to other
vehicles without the need for heavy braking or acceleration will
improve fuel economy.

• Speed: higher speeds use more fuel. Reducing your cruising speed on
open roads will improve fuel economy.

• Shifting: early shifting saves fuel and using the proper gear for a given
speed increases fuel economy.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
