Is there a good breakdown/explanation of the different screens you can put up on the left display? like empower engage etc, i know the manual covered them a bit but the pics are black and hard to see and they just didn't really explain it in a way that made much driving sense to me. Currently i use the "scoreboard" one forget its name because of simplicity, but i feel like one of the others is more beneficial if i had a clue what its trying to tell me.

You are making this harder than it IS.

 

Most of the screens just give you an indication of how efficiently you are managing the throttle.....and brakes to a small extent.

 

It also shows when the system automatically switches to EV mode (battery only).

 

Except for the "instantaneous MPG" screen, on all the others the higher the bar goes on the graph, the more gas you are using.

 

But there is no magic and all of the screens are more interesting than really useful.

 

P.S.  Sounds like it's time to visit your profile and put in your current vehicle.

The Ford Owner YouTube channel has videos that explain each screen, perhaps that would help.

I thought i just did that the other day... hrmm maybe old post?

 

yeah i guess ill give em another go, maybe i was still under screenshock.... i never driven a spaceship before lol much less a hybrid one.

 

I guess in the end all that matters is driving how you feel comfortable and getting adequate MPG, I don't think i'll be one to be chasing the 50mpg tank or trip around.
