I have found that if I leave our 2015 Prius Four in "Power" mode when I
switch it off, when I switch it on again there is no "Mode" indicator at
all -- blank where the Mode indicator normally displays.
What Mode is it actually in at that point? -- doesn't feel like Power
mode when I hit the accelerator. I'm guessing that it's in ECO Mode, but
why doesn't it display that?

It's in normal mode. Not Power. Not ECO.

Thanks, Pat. We are newbie Prius drivers and hadn't realized that there
was a "Normal" mode in addition to the ones activated by the labeled
buttons. When I Googled the modes, I found suggestions that in many
situations "Normal" may be preferable.

Interesting. Why do they believe normal is better? I typically use
ECO because I like to see high mpg's. I sometimes use power when
entering a busy freeway but then I go back to ECO. I do notice that
when I rent a car (non-Prius), I tend to press the gas pedal too hard
at first because I am so used to driving the Prius in ECO mode.

I can no longer find the thread where people were suggesting that Normal
is better, but it was on the priuschat forum.
