Do you lose gas mileage, more wear and tear on the car; if I run it in Sport Mode for long periods? Thanks.
Frankly after running in regular mode for a while, I honestly feel like there's more strain in the engine in regular mode than in Sport mode. I prefer Sport mode and if you drive carefully you'll obtain around the same mileage.Do you lose gas mileage, more wear and tear on the car; if I run it in Sport Mode for long periods? Thanks.
it changes throttle mapping, so that would not increase torque.From what I read sport mode increases low end torqued. That is why you notice a big difference when starting off. It does affect gas mileage, but nothing huge
In an automatic sport mode makes significant changes to the transmission gear changes (gear changes are much quicker with slippage much reduced), shift points are completely remapped, and it holds lower gears for a few seconds if you were at heavy throttle and high rpm and then let off (letting you let off and get back in it without the thing shifting to a higher gear right away). So in the automatic, MPG goes down in sport mode because you are typically a gear lower than in nonsport (the thing almost never goes into 6th unless you are really moving)at any given speed mpg's should be the same in sport mode as in regular.
