    On my 9th gen Civic, Econ only affects throttle response at light and medium load, but at WOT it's the same acceleration in both mode :).
    Econ Mode also plays on climatisation behaviour, but that's it, never really gotten better mpg with it.
    Thank you for the video ;)

    I only use it at cruisimg speeds.. It does make a little difference there.. Other than that makes no difference or actually can make mpg's worse

    When drag is high slow acceleration will give poorer mpg and that shows in shitty city driving. I take econ off unless I'll be going at a constant speed.

    I've found that in slow (<30 MPH) city-type driving, I usually get better MPG in Eco b/c I just barely touch the throttle and there's really no need to.

    That's like 10% of my driving though, so I rarely use it. I'd prefer the better response time.

    The difference is when you are not WOT. From what I've seen, Eco mode vs non at WOT is very similar. Also proven by Hondata vs the old Si. Try a test in 2 or 3rd gear at the same rpm and just go half throttle and compare the boost. I'm certain you'll see the difference then, as that is what I have personally seen. I've done this exact test.

    I'm a bit OCD when it comes to fuel economy and data. If anyone wants to see a full chart of all the times that I had to fuel up in my 9th-gen LX, let me know. Contains fuel economy, pricing, Econ mode, conditions, et cetera. I am doing it with my new 2017 EX-T as well, but I haven't yet seen a reason to turn on Econ.

    Come on, you've never sped (maybe not 15 over but that was only for a second) when you're family was in the car plus that was only for a second. There was no flying around corners, pulling e brakes, racing other cars, etc... I was waiting for this but figured I'd just deal with people giving me crap because I didn't feel I "endangered" her any more than putting her in a car on any other normal day where I may not be speeding but there's 15x the amount of cars around me on the road in both directions. I mean there's at least 2 wrecks(fender benders) on the freeway on my drive home from work every single day.

    ;) That's me btw, if you couldn't figure by now... Lol. Alright, everybody, let me have it :umbrella:

    Only thing I'm keeping track of is fuel mileage, cost, city/hwy %, and octane rating... Because fuelly makes it easy. I'm only at 32.2 overall maybe 50/50 mix. BUT I rarely drive nice so that's awesome mpg to me. I've reset it on the freeway and set the cruise on the way to the airport and 20 miles laster was at 48.
