I've been driving my CRZ for about two weeks now and i can't seem to get my eco score to have more than level 1 leaves. I've driven it smoothly in normal and econ mode and I've used sport mode occassionally. What gives?

It takes a while - several weeks to a couple of months of old lady driving. They aren't gonna give it to you that easy I've noticed. You have to EARN it apparently. Your doing everything right though amigo. It just will take a while. Just keep it up!

I'm in a similar situation, Vol. Two weeks of driving like an old geezer and no reward above the level 1 leaves yet. I agree with the other posters, that it seems to build up over time. But it's misleading because in the owner's manual it says it's real-time scoring. I've had some trips averaging 50 mpgs and no 2nd level yet. It seems to me that the eco score graphic and the lifetime bar below it are just one and the same?

There are two indicators-- the one that I presume you're referring to fills up over time, and in my estimation doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. The other flashes up momentarily after you shut off the ignition and shows you on a one to five tree scale (with partial trees as well) how eco-friendly you drove since the last start-up of the vehicle.

dougal - For the display you see when turning off the ignition, is the scale just 1 to 5 leaves, or does it include multiple levels too? I always see five leaves, but they're all level 1 leaves. I'm wondering if there are levels 2 and 3 to this display.

dsands - You can go down. I let my brother test drive it and of course he floored it in sport mode on the freeway. I lost a leaf in the meter. :p

can we go down a level? does crap driving take away from the bar?
Yes I think it does, on the days when my wife drives it, the meter seems to stay the same or move back a little. And the average fuel mileage drops by 2 to 3 mpg's

I may not have a green thumb but I got a green toe.

Im on two and a half bars with only 3,400 miles. I hope it resets when they do an oil change because it was easy to get there.
You can reset it any time you want. Page 85 on your owner's manual.
