What do the rest of you see your 4 cyl idling at. ECO and non-ECO mode. Curious because I don't see a different in idle between the two. I ask because the book mentions lower idle rpm's as one of the benefits of using it.

I see about 850rpm with Eco mode and about 900rpm with it off. Not a huge difference, and since the normal idle speed is already lower than most 4cyl's I just leave Eco off.

Thanks for the reply. I might be seeing 50 rpm diff. Guess I was expecting more for some reason. I haven't been using ECO much either since I can't "see" the benefits.

the main advantage on the ECO mode is that the car shift alot sooner, so the engine rev less and that equals less gas burned...
