This is interesting. Those with the low MPG (around 18) are you driving MT or AT. I've been driving the AT 8speed in ECO PRO a bit and have noticed the car shifts very quickly under 2000RPM. Before I hit 60km/h in the city, the car is already in 4th or 5th gear. I get around 30 to 33mpg. In Comfort the car shifts at 3000 to 4000rpm on average driving and in Sport + Drive Sport the car shifts at 5000 and above. So if your driving MT try shifting at much lower RPM in city and see what happens. The cars torque band is around 1500 to 2000 rpm.

By the way when i'm in any of the 3 driving experiences i set the computer on the cluster to show real time mpg or L/100 km. Its very helpful to see how the car uses gas at different situations. I noticed sport mode is just as efficient as ECO pro, but eco is much easier to save gas because of the dulled throttle and etc.
