    ECO mode and Cruise Control

    Didnt notice till this past weekend that when your in ECO mode, if you try and activate cruise control it puts you back in Touring mod automatically. Thats seems dumb to me. ECO mode is when cruise control would be even better on gas mileage.

    I believe ECO mode is only a cruise set about 42 mph. If you set the cruise to 42 mph you would get the same benifit'

    ECO mode is a cruise set by RPM not speed. I believe it is set at around 6200rpm right at the onset of boost.

    I've seen ECO reach speeds as high as 47-49mph on the speedo on my RXP-X where a friend's GTR in ECO mode only hit 42-45mph

    ECO Mode maps efficient fuel controls based on RPM, keeping fuel consumption as low as possible while keeping you moving. A practical example is when you initiate a TIGHT turn:

    In Cruise Control the RPMs will go through the roof to maintain your SPEED in a tight turn as your speed would normally go down. Cruise Control compensates by increasing RPM to maintain your Cruising speed.

    In ECO mode in the same tight turn your RPMs are limited. It will get you through the turn within an RPM range that doesn't drink fuel like a sailor .




    I use ECO mode A LOT when touring for two reasons:
    1. Much better fuel economy
    2. Smoother ride than Cruise

    ECO and Cruise are Not the same thing.

    Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead but when your throttle is fully depressed in eco mode, is the throttle body also wide open too? My ski is limited to 6010-6020 39mph in eco mode, so I would think it's only part throttle. When I start to let off the throttle it doesn't loose rpm until it is nearly halfway let off.
