Going to sport mode from comfort definitely drops a gear on the freeway. The auto is an 8 speed. While cruising on the freeway in 8th gear switching to sport will drop it down to 7th. The throttle mapping also holds the gears much longer resulting in constant higher rpm and therefore higher gas consumption. The gas mileage definitely is affected while in sport mode....not that it matters!!! lol
