Does Eco Mode really save gas?

You are very conscious about what types of things you purchase because you are concerned about the environment. As a result, you try to purchase items from quality brands that are doing good things for the environment, and you try to purchase vehicles that are hybrid or that have a really good estimated fuel economy. You have been reading and learning about Eco Mode and have been wondering, “Does Eco Mode really save gas?” We are going to take a closer look at this question below. We have a great selection of vehicles with this feature available at Capital Honda!

What is Eco Mode?

Eco or Econ Mode stands for “economical mode” of a vehicle. If a driver pushes this button, specific features will be altered. This is used so that drivers can go farther in their vehicles without using as much gas.

To answer the question above, yes, Eco Mode really does save gas. What happens is the acceleration is restrained so you will be saving on fuel and electricity. It works the best when you have to make quick trips that are not far from home. Some examples would be running to the grocery store, running your kids to and from school, and meeting your friend at a local restaurant. As stated above, when Eco Mode is on, it limits acceleration. Because of this, Eco Mode is not a good idea for highway or long-distance trips.
