Efficient driving is really about accelerating slowly and anticipating so you don't have to brake much. Drive really smoothly and you will be most of the way there.

Remember that regenerative braking isn't 100% efficient, so try to use as infrequently as you can. As Rei says above, try to anticipate as much as possible.

Of course, if you drive in Milton Keynes, between roundabouts, avoiding stray concrete cows, or up and down big hills in the Peak District then you'll need regenerative braking.

In E-pedal, D and B are the same.
Without E-pedal, you often don't get full regen, even in B until you move the brake pedal. (You can check for yourself by observing the power gauge.)

I've not had the warning light but I have had the orange Intelligent emergency braking disabled warning. It's fixed by cleaning the windscreen camera and sensor in the Nissan badge on the front grille.
