Honda ECON Button works by changing your throttle response, cruise control, air condition and transmission. This will make the vehicle more fuel efficient.
In my 2014 Civic the ECON button is most efficient when driving long distances. When driving distances longer than 30 miles I average 37-40mpg with it on versus approximately 33mpg with it off. I'm a daily driver of a minimum of 50 miles per day and definitely notice a difference with the ECON on.
Almost all of the vehicles in Honda’s lineup can be made more efficient by using the Honda Econ Button. Even traditional gasoline-powered models offer an Econ mode, and new Hybird options like the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid—detailed here by the experts at Car and Driver —are taking Honda’s impressive capabilities to new heights!
Drivers in West Michigan know that Honda’s lineup of fuel-efficient and Hybrid models grows every year, and almost every vehicle in Honda’s lineup offers an Econ mode. The new 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid—as seen here in Car and Driver—is just one compelling option among many! Understanding when to use your Honda’s Econ button isn’t as difficult as it might at first seem.
I just bought a 2017 Honda CR-V with a Turbo engine….I was told by most if not all of the Honda staff to leave the econ button on all the time…However, I met at Honda a long time mechanic and he said to only use it on highway driving only but not city driving….I forget what he said mechanically, but it will hurt the engine if you keep it on in city traffic….
Honda’s new Econ button evades this problem by allowing users to switch between sustainable and high-performance modes. Available on most models, it captures the best of both worlds for Honda users.
