This^ my LLT shifts just before redline at WOT while in sport mode. I always drive around in sport mode. However I'm going to use drive on my road trip to the cities to see what kind of MPG I get. I should be able to control myself being my GF will be with me, and she doesn't like to drive spiritedly like I do.
I got 24MPG while in sport mode driving to OK ~1,000 miles. But I was cruising pretty quickly.
