Hello from Spain. I bought a Toyota RAV4 hybrid. I have several questions:
1. What is the difference between the mode button SPORT mode and the mode "S" shift lever?
2. I have noticed that with the lever in S mode, lifting the foot off the accelerator, the vehicle greatly reduces the speed.
3. In my car, the control buttons of the door mirrors, not light In light yours? Thank you.

I have switched over to ECO mode, full time now, and no longer notice much difference. My usual route is up hill (20% grade), most of the way there, which provides around 25mpg. It is hard to pulse and glide uphill, but would be interested if someone has mastered it (up hill) :). On the return trip I get close to 45mpg. I still love driving it, every time I get behind the wheel.

Of course it depends on the grade, but yes it can be done. Even if you only manage to get 25% EV you'll increase your trip average by several MPG, maybe even 5mpg. Work on it. The toughest part is just remembering to do it.
