Is anyone using the ECO mode on a regular basis, and if so what MPG's are you getting?

Or is it a useless feature?

I have switched between eco and std on the past few tanks, and would hazzard a guess that eco does improve mpg by 1. I now use it for highway driving, but the slow acceleration from a stop is annoying.

My dash says 16.2 mpg at a 18mph average through local roads on half a tank. I've almost always driven on the ECO mode. This is my first tank. Too early for me to judge the car :)

I would assume ECO mode gets you the top or above the highway MPG, but as always everyone drives differently.

The ECO mode would likely be useful on the freeway but not that useful on stop and go traffic.
The eco mode is more for stop and go - all the eco mode does is have the transmission shift sooner as well as applies resistance to the accelerator which helps you not take off as fast. On the highway you will not see a difference btw the standard and eco modes.
