the circle around the speedometer that usually indicated if you are accelerating too fast for good fuel economy is not operating properly. what is this circle [really 2 arcs] called & what causes this


Asked by Jun 20, 2016 at 02:28 PM about the 2013 Honda Accord Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


It is called Eco Assist or Ecological Drive Assist System. It is Honda's way of providing feedback directly to a driver on whether they are driving efficiently or not. Smooth accelerating and decelerating obviously saves gas and the arc glows green. More aggressive driving burns more gas and the green fades to another color (usually blue or white).
