I have had my soul 2u since february 27th.
It is automatic one.
I have now 400km on it.

My fuel comsumption for the past week (city only) is:
12,7lts/100km
Not bad but I hope it would get better soon (winter still here)

That's what, 18.5 MPG or so? If so, that is pretty bad. I have a Soul + and I get around 26-27 MPG around town. I have the 2.0 L with an automatic.

I used an online conversion utility for mileage (http://www.teaching-english-in-japan.net/conversion/mpg/) and I get around 8L/100Km. It appears that while it drives great on the highway, it's definitely not very efficient like it is around town. I was doing 75mph for quite a bit of it, and ended up with around 25mpg between highway and city driving. Oh, and it does 80mph very well. :)

12,7 L/100km is exactly 18.5 MPG (http://www.pege.org/fuel/convert.htm)

As you said it is pretty bad.
Someone told me it will get better after the engine will have around 8000km on it.

This is far from the specs:
2,0 Liters, 4-speed automatic transmission: 8.5L/100 city/ 6.6L/100 highway (33/43MPG).

Next week end I am going to put some 1200km on it just on highway.
I will report
