Oh another fuel economy related thing -- Eco Pro mode can make a big fuel economy difference if your route includes a lot of 45-ish MPH roads or hilly highways. I wish there were a setting for Comfort throttle response but eDRIVE/coasting up to Eco Pro's limits.

I've also gotten better at switching into Eco Pro while I'm at speed and back to Comfort for standing starts or passing/merging. If you micromanage that a bit you can usually squeeze another mpg or two out of your trips.... Whether or not it's worth the hassle is another story. For me, some days I take it as a challenge to see how efficiently I can drive, and other days I just want it in sport mode and unleash the power of the car.
