I really hope this topic wasn't already covered......*flamesuit on*

Do you drive with the "Power" square depressed or not?

I'm guessing its something on the eshift is. Probably gives more hp/torque for less gas milage?

Since I dont have the power button, I wont skew the results of your survey. But no, I dont drive with the button depressed.

Although once I was almost out of gas and i drove with the snow button down. :wink:

Yeah, it's for the eshifters. Dealer said it changes your shift points for more aggressive driving.

ECT Power
Holds the gears for longer period of time, increases fuel useage

Used for more 'power', or better acceleration

Well in gate shift, it wont shift at all until u want it to

But i think ECT Power also alters the ECU to consume more fuel. Dunno

I just use it when I need it. Like beating that dork in a riced out civic next to you at the stoplight.

It kinda makes me feel like David Hasselhof pushing KIT's nitro button. :lol:
