    I drove 400 miles in Eco mode and got 20.8 MPG it was tough riding in Eco but it got great gas mileage. I got on it 2-3 times though just to air it out.Does anyone know how many HP is in Eco mode?

    Was the 20.8 mpg what the trip computer was showing or what was hand calculated out?

    I hand calculated it out also it was really close to the computer believe it or not it's still got some pep though...I noticed it starts out in second gear in Eco mode.

    Yes pretty close to 350 miles you just have to milk it to get it though ...I found this on the net

    If you 're easy on the throttle, I think you can get that same mileage in normal driving. That's a pretty big IF though...

    I think your right ...the Eco pretty much just changes up the shift pattern some is all ... If you watch the jay Leno hellcat video that Chrysler dude says it doesn't matter which mode you are in to get the best mileage just keep your foot out of it and it will get good mileage

    Wow I did not realize they put Eco mode in the hellcat since MDS never finished in time for them to release the hellcats.

    That's mighty impressive fuel economy. Perhaps it puts the engine into valet mode, which is just 300hp? That would still give it a bit of pep, while maximizing mpg, along with the revised shift schedule, second gear starts, and revised pedal map, --not that the Hellcat buyer is gonna 'worry' about such things, but it's nice to know such capabilities!
