Funny you should mention this. I noticed shortly after buying the Versa with the CVT I never saw any indication it ever goes into DFCO. My Ultra Gauge sometimes on downhill coasts will give me readings of 175-200 MPG but even then it's constantly changing with speed and rpm. The only possible indication is in the factory installed MPG unit. It will go to 99.9 but the Ultra Gauge is just showing that it has exceeded its limits. The Scan Gauge in my Ford Escort wagon with 5 speed manual will go to 9999 as soon as I let off the gas at highway speed and stay there until either I accelerate again or the engine needs fuel to continue to operate.

With problems that have plagued the CVT I refuse to shift from "D" to "N" and back to "D" to save a couple drops of gas. If it did cause any problems with the CVT it certainly wouldn't be worth the $4000-$5000. they want to replace one.
