93 Eclipse fuel mode issue?

93 Eclipse GS 16v DOHC (automatic)

Just recently, I have noticed that when I have the fuel mode switch on
"Economy" I get just about no acceleration at highway speeds (65+ mph). To
be more elaborate, it seems as though the pedal goes down to the floor more
easily now and the RPM's stay about 2500 or so til I literally have the
pedal on the floor and then it shoots up to 4000+ RPM.

Now, when I have the switch on "Power" it seems as though the problem doesnt
occur at all... but the consequence is the overwhelming amount of gas being
wasted. Anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing this? I
brought the car into the shop and they said they couldnt find anything wrong
with it, but then again, I dont think they drove it at highway speeds.

considering the gas prices nowadays, I'd rather not.

Don't listen to google, what you should do is take it to someone that will take it to the highway and let them drive at highway speeds so they at least know what you mean, I myself am a mechanic and have never heard of that problem so I can't help ya :ohcrap:
