In my normal driving I don't put it in sport mode so I can't really say, but I would assume it does affect the gas mileage because it will hold gears longer and be at higher rpms.

I would think it would be negligible. Yes, it holds gears longer but under normal driving it recognizes your not driving aggressively pretty quickly and upshifts to the gear normal mode would have been in. In typical commuting I too drive in normal, but solely for the softer ride. Unless of course I'm late for work.

Pretty sure sport mode always keeps you one extra gear down, I dont think it will ever let the car go into 6th gear for example on the highway. If that is the case, then yes you would definitely see less MPG.

I have to agree with the one gear down based on what I have seen. It also holds all gears longer even at light throttle. So yes on less MPG...
