I like to think of it as another form of performance. I have one car to get my "go fast" performance and I am happy with it and the project it has become/will be. But for a car I drive every day, I am looking for MPG performance and that means maximum miles per gallon, vs. the "usual" performance of maximum HP per gallon. I like to tinker and work on car, I don't care if it's to make the car fast or sip less fuel, I'm having fun either way. And ecomodding allows me to play much more since it's a good bit cheaper than the quest for more horsepower
