Dont drive in A mode!!! This post is a bit tongue-in-cheek as we say. One of the Forum members said in passing the other day that MPG was not really something to be focused on. They said (and I apologize that I dont recall who it was) they reminded themselves of Why they bought an Alfa. It is not to get world-class gas mileage. So, after driving around in A mode the past week, I switched back to N yesterday. What a difference it makes! I can feel the Joy again of driving this vehicle. I live in Minnesota where the roads can be covered with snow many months of the year. I do not recommend driving in D mode with snow or ice covered roads. At least I have not found it terribly easy to control the Stelvio when doing so. I will save D mode for Spring, Summer, and Fall driving. Enjoy your Alfa!!
