Sorry, I probably missed it, as I spent the weekend on a white water rafting trip.
Jimmy gave an excellent answer, and the only thing I'll add is that ECO also cuts back the energy used for climate control. There really isn't anything in ECO that you can't do manually to save energy.
ECO does a good job on regen, so about the only time I use ECO is on a downhill. Of course, I can duplicate this by applying the brakes (but not so much brakes that I engage the real brakes).
