Have done as SDrick says but you do use less electricity by sport setting;
I'm not sure if this is accurate. Yes, the plaid mode can certainly consume more electricity. My hunch is that electricity consumption would be the same if the amount of acceleration and speed are the same. I could be wrong but I look at it like filling a water jug. The bigger the pipe, the faster it can fill. But if the valve is set for 1 gallon per minute, it does not matter the size of the pipe.
