    yes, you get feedback with the eco assist on, which will be a valuable tool to help one learn to drive more efficiently.

    but, eco assist is also an active system...the vehicles engine performance and transmission (and i believe also air conditioning system) are adjusted. there is less hp and torque available.

    ECO button

    I drove an EX sedan a couple of days ago and switched back and forth, on-off with the ECO button. (No AC on at the time, so I don't know how that affects it.) Having the button on did two obvious things: less responsiveness in the throttle, and the transmission wanted to be in a higher gear--that is, it upshifted sooner and did not downshift as readily with the application of more power. Basically, it turned the car into a DOG, but that is a trade-off I'm sometimes willing to make in order to get better mpg.

    I didn't take the car out on the interstate, so I don't know what difference ECO would make in the gas mileage when holding a constant 70 mph; my guess is, not that much. The ECO mode is probably more effective in saving fuel in around-town driving with its frequent gear shifts and changing amounts of throttle.

    If you want to be compulsive (who, me, compulsive?) about your gas mileage, there is both an instant mpg gauge and the blue/green light system (blue=normal, green=gas-sipping operation) on the upper dashboard to keep you occupied.

    From what i have read, the AC unit is effected by the ECON button.

    Yeah the two pillar lights on the side of the MPH change from blue to gren based on your driving.....i found myself watching the colors more than the MPH lol

    That's still not bad Scott..

    I wish my commute was more highways (or at least highways where it's not stop & go) but I went to Atlantic City, NJ for a Civic meet this past weekend and I filled up on Saturday Morning around 8am and left to go up there.. Got home around 1am and I went 300 miles and I was at 1/4 left..

    Edit: It's not a Civic. Sorry

    I don't have the Econ button in my car

    I consistently get about 330 miles to the tank before the light pops up and if I push it, like I always do, I get about 360-370 miles to the tank about 10 miles after there's no bars left.

    If I'm taking a trip and it's 100% hwy, I get about 480-520 miles to the tank.

    Yeah but I'm just cruising and I'm going the speed limit or below, so that's probably a very big factor of it as well.

    People actually go the speed limit? (and below??!)

    I hate the people that go BELOW the speed limit!

    I go about 5 mph over (up to 10mph)
