5 leaves all around!!

Today while driving very grandpaish i was able to get all 5 ecomode leaves for each category. When i first found the ecomode page I had 2 for gear shift 3 for anticipation and 4 for speed. So with some driving style changes ive been able to keep them at 5 all day. Also with them all at five my mileage never dropped below 34. Anyone else play around with these just for fun.

I thought that one time I saw some green leaves pop up on the screen. Never seen them since, and had convinced myself I had dreamt about the leaves.

Coincidentally in another thread today, I wrote about my underwhelming 21-22 mpg in all city driving, staying too long in 3rd and the green shift lights, and that shifting into the higher gears before the green lights lets me achieve the EPA city, in the city.

So thanks Dickeys & Elizabeth, I'm gonna go look for that econo menu!

How do you find the "eco menu"? I have five leaves no matter how I drive but I only see the one little flower on the main screen.

Last night I dreamt I had been driving at night the last 3 years with only the city lights running. I suddenly discovered the full headlights. We don't even have city lights.

I check the screen from time to time. I generally have all the leaves lit whenever I check. I don't even try.

To find it go the the screen that just says your average mileage then scroll to the right that should bring up the economode menu. It will look like my avatar.

Ok, I do have 5 leaves on speed but none on the other two things and with very short commutes we have 50% drives with engine cold; not good for mpgs but still getting a hand calculated 28mpg in the city.

I love playing with the little screen, especially on road trips. I can get it for anticipation, but rarely get it for speed (goose egg...whoops!) and shifting (I like to downshift and GO!).
