The "ECO" light makes me feel so good about myself

I love the "ECO" light on my 2011 Hemi Grand Cherokee, to me it's kind of like the "Hybrid" letters on a Hybrid. Every time the light comes on I just know that I'm doing my share to protect the earth from total destruction in the next couple of years. I wonder if I can get some sort of an ECO credit on my tax return?

Re: The "ECO" light makes me feel so good about myself

Love it... feel the same way about my Hemi. Every time my ECO light comes on I think of all the tools and toys I have to run when I get home to prevent another ice age.

The good thing about the greenie cars is they are so quiet they can really hear my Hemi as I power by.

Heh, I turned mine off in the EVIC. With the V-6 it means almost nothing, it's just stupid.

Doesn't the ECO light mean Extra Carbon Output?

Everytime that little light comes on friend, there is one happier chipmunk in this world. You're a good man.

Re: The "ECO" light makes me feel so good about myself

For me, every time the ECO light comes on, I feel a bit guilty. That is, until I put my foot on the pedal and feel all of that Hemi power.

Almost makes me forget all about the endangered species of flora and fauna I'm crushing when I go off-road. That's what I call an carbon offset.

I do have a genuine concern for the flora and fauna, maybe you could purchase flora/fauna offset crush credits somewhere ?
