No, I have the Turbo. Guess the only difference with you and I is I am doing 100% city driving no Hwy...with calculated mpg, I have got about 22mpg with ECO on for the past 3 months and the past 3 days with it off I think I am getting 23-24. Again same routes and same type of driving the past 3 months but need to do a couple of tanks like this before I will no for sure....

My first tank mixed rural/ suburban was 25 MPG with the ECO on. My first tank of strictly Hwy 65 mph cruise and 55 mph cruise no AC with about a 400 lb load including me was 30.7. My experience with the ECO button in the 2012 Accent I just traded in after 27500 miles in 8 months was that the car was much more pleasant to drive in town with the button off and I could match the ECO on mpg with a light foot if I wanted. On the hwy it was good for 2 mpg because it held gear on the the rolling hills rather than downshift. I was getting 48 mpg per tank with 55 cruise and no ac; much better than the factory rating. My only mods were 35 psi in the weeny tires and a K & N drop in air filter.
On those times when you need to accelerate in town to safely pass or avoid a situation, one often doesn't have time to disengage the ECO button to effect a positive change. After reading this post, I'm going to turn off the ECO on my daily commute starting today and only use it for HWY cruising; the opposite of the manual recommends.

Let us know what you find out, be curious to see what your MPG does

ECO off, but a few full throttle bursts. 24.3 MPG on daily commute second tank full. Going to ATL today with wife to see our kids; we'll see if i can duplicate the 30.7 from the previous tank.

Angry No better!

I've had my GLS for 31 days now. I've NEVER gotten better than 24 mpg with the ECO on. I've driven strictly city and mixed routes since I've bought it. I'm not pleased!

next tank 29 mpg; about 90% hwy 10% city, ECO on hwy only. I think my fuel gauge is off as others have reported. I will have the dealer reset the adaptive parameters and then report back in a few weeks.

Agree. I wish I got 24 in just city driving. I might get 24 on 60% hwy /40% city.
