I know our CRV is much more fun to drive in Sport instead of Drive and the econ off. Has anyone compared gas mileage in different modes? IE... in S vs D and with econ off vs. on?

Have not, but we use Sport mode a lot both from standing start & to use as engine braking. For normal driving though D mode is fine so never drove in Sport long enough to track MPGs

I noticed on the highway at 65 mph in Sport, the rpm's stay around 2800 and in Drive about 1700. HUGE difference

My drive to work with econ 28. and return is 33. MPG. With econoff, they came about 1 mpg less each way, 27/32.
Great data! Now try the same route in Sport mode, if you dare - that would be really interesting to see.
I had no idea there was a sport mode until you mentioned It. Thanks punchy. The mileage was all over. The morning commute used to be 28/27 went down by 1, but the return went down to 3. I figured that returning downhill, the engine stayed revved up and didn't save gas.
The sport mode is great to merge into the crazy NJ traffic.
