Anyone else getting better gas mileage in sport + manual? Having the torque converter locked up in 2 to 8th seems to get me closer to the rated mileage and still have some fun.

Snow mode on these cars is excellent. Far better than the BMW and Audi I test drove last winter.

There should be an option for those who drive without any electronic assistance.

I get far worse gas mileage when I am in sport mode. I did a comparison by driving in normal mode for a full tank and then a full tank in sport mode. The difference was pretty big, but it was not a fair test. For some reason whenever I push the sport button I push the gas pedal more. LOTS MORE!! I tried a couple other times, but I keep having the same problem. Whenever I'm in sport mode I just like to feel the power that much more. I even attempted to compare manual to auto. Same problem. I just can't engage manual without the sport button....and you know where that leads me

City driving gas mileage never goes well try using sport + manual in 8th for long highway trips. It seems Lexus was after the smooth ride quality and eliminating shift shock at the expense of fuel consumption in normal mode.

Sport Mode 90% of the time.....

Snow mode for when cops are around me. It helps me pull away from a stop with the least amount of throaty exhaust noise...

I guess it depends on you. I have never gotten better mpg's in sport mode. For some reason, when that little green light is on my foot gets heavy too!
