Hello -

I read somewhere that Fiat has become the auto-eco-leader in Europe recently because of it's emphasis on "bread and butter" MPG efficiencies like lowering weight and lowering engine displacement. I think they also had a hand in developing the "Common Rail direct fuel injection" technology for diesel.

This "eco-pack" option is very much in line with that philosophy. This is what we have wanted all along. I really like the ECU mod options, because this is in line with what the sport-compact tuner crowd already do for more HP. Just offering "final gear" transmission options would be such an improvement.
