Things I've noticed in the 5 days and 1/2 tank of fuel I've used with the Eco-Tune so far:

- The pedal feel is definitely more progressive. It's a little less responsive at low levels, but more predictable across the entire range. It took a few days, but now that I'm used to I like it.
- The engine seems to just be more "calm" at slow speeds. I know the RPM -> speed is basically fixed for a given gear, but it feels like its working less. Perhaps due to more efficient burn...
- The EVIC is showing 3-4 mpg higher than it would be before the tune with the same driving style and conditions. We'll see how the highway mileage goes after I make a long trip over the holiday weekend with a complete tank of fuel.
- Accurate display on the fuel gauge is freaking me out a little It's been at 1/4 tank or lower for 2 days now and I haven't seen it suddenly drop to nothing and trigger the low fuel light like the old non-linear behavior. That's really odd, but welcome.

I haven't really tried doing the "pedal to the metal" test since I'm nursing a slow leak in one tire and don't want to tempt fate, but I'll report more information as it becomes available. So far all good things and nothing bad.
