The DPA system is estimated to improve the fuel economy ratings up to 5 percent. DPA uses a reward-based system, encouraging drivers to increase their “score.” Coaching tips will decrease as the driver skill level improves. DPA can also be deactivated at any time.

DPA not only improves fuel economy but can also help reduce wear and tear and increase component life.
