Nothing much, you may find it drops a gear and gear changes become a bit more "sporty" as it tries to keep the engine in the power band but other than that it's about it. I never bother to be fair, as it just uses more fuel.

As I said it keeps the car in the power band, so uses more fuel etc. It does not give the engine any extra power.

I have found in heavy traffic that sport mode uses less fuel. It is much more keen on downshifts, so is using more engine braking and therefore less fuel. For anything else I completely agree, it drinks like a fish!
It's still a lot more fun though!
