I've done a few tanks in ECO, Normal, and Sport mode. I've noticed no difference in MPG.

Has anyone else noticed this as well?

The biggest change in economy will be in your driving habits. These modes will only change it slightly and likely only in the best case on a steady highway drive. Eco will upshift faster to get the Atlas in a higher gear at slower speeds, will alter the cycling of the a/c system, and will be more gentle with acceleration when using the ACC. Sport will hang the shifts longer which should make a v. small ding to the fuel economy.

My Atlas is in sport mode and on a trip from So Cal to Arizona I got some great fuel economy even though I have a lot of Neuspeed mods to the motor. Check the dash photo
