15 Petals.jpg

I know some on this Forum say leafs or leaves, but the Manual says petals. This was at mile 375 of this trip, ave mpg showing 28.9 (I think the shown ave mpg is slightly optimistic; I recently filled up at 300 miles after previous fill, and calculation showed 28.4). These 375 trip miles were about one-third on Interstate at 75-80 mph, about one-third on city streets, and about one-third on two lane back country roads, including some gear-down twisties in North Georgia. My car is a basic ST.

I still have that achievement. Its been three weeks. Have yet to "grow" a pedal yet.

Do not... what ever you do.. cut the muffler off the car. Its addicting. It simply ruins the car.

Or... makes it wonderful. Sounds like a saturn 5 rocket. Love.

How do you get to see the trophy? I usually have all petals and I have never seen this.

I've been there, you have to keep up the good driving for a leaf (usually shifting takes the longest) worth of time, then you get your award...

Same here. I've had all of the petals for over 3 weeks and still haven't seen a trophy. Does MPG have anything to do with it? I only do "city" driving and average about 22.2 - 22.5 MPG.

I'm averaging about 25 and I haven't seen it so I don't know that it has to do with MPG. I'm only 1mpg from the combined average EPA rating.

Once again, I can't seem to even get one leaf, petal, or what ever in shifting. Still getting 100% in super fun mode though.

once you are at the screen that show all your petals push the "ok" button. This will take you to another screen where you can scroll through the individual categories. The last screen or page should show you your trophy.

That's one of my favorite things about the ST. The ability to go Eco when you want to - and achieve some very economical mpg numbers. And, ofcourse, the ability to get on it and really enjoy a visceral and powerful engine. I bought it for the package. Performance was the priority, but I love the Eco on the side.

I've had max petals for anticipation and speed regularly, but never even seen one petal for gear shifting, even after shifting at 2k rpm for 2 days. What's the trick to this?
