What I said was it has no control over how you drive, and you can't turn it off, but you can ignore it if you want.

You can make the leaves go away by driving as hard as possible all the time.
Well yeah sure there's a display mode in the center display that says eco but what I meant was that some cars adjust engine management and shift points etc. to improve fuel economy and lower emissions with their "eco" mode. Ford has left it up to drivers to produce their own "eco". So turning it off simply involves switching the display to show something else.

That's a shame, would have been cool if Eco mode was able to be switched off
