Yes, it's a hybrid at that point. 15% is reserved for hybrid operating. Low speed and idle will usually be EV.

I think I did put a dent in the hybrid today given some harder off-roading and long idle. It started to run the engine more than usual.

No, keep it hybrid (or EV)! :) The default mode really won't do you wrong. E-save is to use when you are heading to a trail and want to maximize electric power at a given time. From what I've read, trail use can get a considerably long run time as you usually aren't fighting aerodynamics.

So on the Highway use e-saver ?
Think of eSave as SAVE. You’re saving the battery for later. It’s a special case use mode. It’s the least efficient mode. Due to the laws of thermodynamics, when we ask the engine to work harder, it is going to use more fuel. When we save or charge the battery using the gas engine, it is going to use more gas.
