and how often do you use them?

for example:

EV - never
Eco - never
Normal - 60%
Sport - 40%

btw, is there any different between eco and normal mode. and does sport mode consume more gas?

EV - 5%
Eco - 70%
Normal - 15%
Sport - 10%

Use ev to sneak in on my road, parkinglots and so on, its great when just just need to move the car a little, so that you never have to start the engine.
Eco for highway driving and normal driving
Normal on really hot days when I need the aircondition to cool the car down fast.
I use Sport on curvy roads when I like to have a little fun, or for acceleration (getting around a slow car)

Difference between eco and normal is a few but the main differences is that the Aircondition is restricted in eco mode and the trottle is dampened so that the car feels "tired".
Sport mode do consume more fuel in the way that the gas pedal is very sensitive, so it kind of pushes you to consume more fuel. It opens the trottle faster.

I'm too busy listening to the '50s, '60s, '70s, Escape, Sinatra or Classic Jazz on the XM radio to care what mode I'm in. At most, the difference in mileage would only be 1 or 2 mpg. Once in a great while I'll select the Power Mode so I can glance at the tach and try to imagine that I'm actually in a car that needs a rev counter, but for the most part, I leave the selector alone.

If I was a lot younger I might choose the EV mode a quarter-mile from my digs so I could slither into the driveway after a late night poker game without waking the wife, but those days are long gone. If they weren't, I'd probably be on a Fiat 500 forum instead of this one!

I find after a couple of weeks with the car I'm starting to prefer it in sport mode all the time. I like the sensitive throttle and having the extra power immediately. Still get great mileage if I take it easy.

Good 'stealthy return' scenario, Bill. I'm going to remember that one.
