    ECT iirc is Electronic Controlled Transmission

    it basically changes your shift points to make towing a bit easier

    should the ECT be used when towing something over a long distance?

    it can be used for that. i used it this weekend when towing a trailer of furniture and things for a 2 hour trip.....i used the ect button, and my mileage was actually pretty decent towing and using it. the more you do it though,.........the more you probably need to change transmission fluid!
