    Wtf? I just tested it myself. Did you click on free download? When I do, the xlsx pops up right away to download?

    Let me know if still an issue and I'll upload to a different site.

    Yeah, I clicked on the free download, but I wish I hadn't. I don't know why it was ugly for me and not for you, but I'm not clicking on that link again. Thanks for offering your spreadsheet, but I'll pass. I'll be making my own spreadsheet anyway. Thanks again.

    Here, I'll just share it from my OneDrive so we know there are zero issues: https://1drv.ms/x/s!ArqXiPjhDlQzuUwo...Kkt58?e=krgZtX.

    I've set the link to expire on the 22nd.

    My 2013 2.0 Turbo is getting 12L/100KM with 70% city/ 30% highway (about 19.5MPG) .

    I tried with Eco mode, and that gets me to ~11L/100KM or so - but the throttle response makes me sick.
    I'd be super happy to just get 25 MPG - so getting 30MPG is pretty darn good lol. Keep in mind turbos are pretty thirsty, especially in the city.

    Fellow montrealer, what gas are you using? I get about 9.5-11 L/100 with mixed driving. 50/50 highway city.

    I mainly use Costco premium, or Shell premium if there's no Costco nearby.

    Honestly if I was also doing that extra time on the highway my consumption might bit closer to yours. That being said, I'm not super careful with my driving style ( but I don't go and floor the throttle either)

    My 2013 2.0 Turbo is getting 12L/100KM or about 21MPG. It has a new motor so I'm hoping it might go up a little as it gets broken in. Does worse than I expected compared to other cars I've had, but fun to drive.

    My car is usually a local/city driver, and I average around 19/20mpg. But on a recent trip, 700mi each way, I was getting between 36-39mpg for the longer stretches.
