    I thought that was custom mode. I was thinking smart mode was the cars computer adjusting things to what it thought the driver might need but I really don't know.

    For those of you who only drive in sport mode, how is your gas mileage? Particularly on the highway? I read somewhere that the car won't go into 8th gear when in sport mode. Is that true?

    Yes, Custom is customizable, Smart is the car learning and adapting.

    Your gas mileage will 100% take a hit from only driving in sport mode. Sport mode stays in each gear longer, so you won't hit 8th gear unless you're cruising at a cool 90-95mph. 75-85 or so is 7th gear.

    Correct, but you can use the paddle and lock in 8th. I do this and the RPMs drop to the same level they do using Comfort.

    As for mileage, on my last trip I hit 28 mpg, strictly in sport, while cruising 75-80.
