    I was expecting the audio to be Phil Collins, not radio 4!

    Yes I had wondered about this, I swear I have seen it say E1/E2 etc. but most of the time it seems to show D1/D2, I don't know why it shows D1/D2 rather than E1/E2 if in efficiency mode.

    Also I have noticed the coasting doesn't always engage, I have economy tips enabled and it tells me to take my foot off the accelerator, sometimes it goes to "D" with no number, other times it shows D8. So I guess D8 is engine braking and "D" is coasting, maybe it uses the satnav to work out what to do as it will tell me to lift off if coming up to a 30mph speed limit or roundabout. It's bloody clever but I sometimes I just don't know why it's doing "D8" as opposed to "D".

    Stop/start is also a conundrum, I have figured out that a light touch on the brake will not cause the engine to cut out, press harder and it cuts. But sometimes it completely disables stop/start and the engine won't cut out no matter how hard you stomp on the brake. Sometimes I will be stopped at lights and the engine cuts out, then for no reason it starts again. And other times when I am just crawling/braking/crawling/braking it will cut out and then immediately restart, this can get pretty annoying and it would be a good if there is a way to tune stop/start to stop it being so aggressive, almost like it needs a delay (e.g don't cut out for 1 second after the stop threshold has been activated).

    Would be nice to understand what benefits efficiency mode gives me compared to the other modes, probably need to read the manual again.

    Now I am an old fart I seem to be more pre-occupied with mpg than mph these days. ;-)
