    OK just finished 3,600 k trip with 20.6 Zone. Not about fuel but best tow setup. I found that Dynamic in drive gave best ride and best fuel consumption, takes the bounce out. Sport also changes damping but gets slightly higher fuel usage.

    SDV8 has dynamic mode as standard not sure if other models have.

    Dynamic makes it ride way too hard in my SCV8. It also makes the throttle and gearbox settings too aggressive, great on a windy road but annoying when towing.
    I donít believe sport affects the suspension only gearbox settings.
