MPG, C or S

tried something to satisfy my curiosity.

as background, I don't have a heavy foot from a red light, and I don't drive hard, or push it.

I normally use C for the transmission setting. as I understand it, C has different shift points than S, and C starts in 2nd gear where S starts in 1st.

On returning home today on a weekly trip of ~ 55 miles one way, kept it in S.

My MPG was about 1 MPG less than when I was in C.
