What is the disadvantage of mode 3? or how does it differ from not using the device?GetOffYourGas wrote:Sorry I didn't post my results sooner. I wanted to follow my testing with a few hundred miles of driving without the PedalLogic unit so I could control my usage to be as similar as possible.PedalLogic wrote:Hi Everyone,
Latest report from GetOffYourGas:
Here are my stats since changing to mode 3 on 5/26/17. Temps have been warmer, from 45-90, average around 70. Driving was the same split of highway/local with the same speeds. I saw a roughly 9% improvement overall.
The unit has three modes, each progressively more aggressive. Here are my numbers after 800+ miles in each mode:
baseline (no PedalLogic) - 3.3 miles / kWh
Mode 1 - 3.5 miles/kWh
Mode 2 - 3.4 miles/kWh
Mode 3 - 3.7 miles/kWh
All modes performed better than stock. Mode 3 saw about a 12% improvement from stock (the quote above was relative to Mode 2, which was the least efficient mode, but still better than stock). My driving was as consistent as possible through each mode's test. Temperatures were similar and I always had the climate running with slight A/C (never heat). The efficiency numbers settled into a very consistent value, which gave me a high confidence in them.
I also found that the unit made it easier to drive efficiently when desired. It definitely works as advertised, smoothing out the bumps.
Any real disadvantage of mode 1? I mean would one even notice the difference between mode 1 or a car without the device?
