Hi People

Any Leaf users use the ECO button ? does it do much for the range of the vehicle , any long term benefits ?

Are you sure it increases the regen ? I haven't noticed any difference there, although I haven't tried to measure it accurately.
My S model (no B mode) definitely has more regen in Eco, I sometimes use this on downhills to save having to use the brake (i.e. there's more off-throttle regen, but I think I can get the same regen by touching the brake gently so it doesn't really change efficiency). The throttle mapping in Eco is horrible (unresponsive), so I don't use it otherwise.
