I think you will see a difference as the mileage racks up and as the dual clutches bed in. Maybe at 2,000 miles you will see the 30 MPG mark depending on your driving style.

Use Fuelly to track your fuel mileage. It gives you actual numbers than what the cars computer puts out.

Welcome to the Forum!
I agree. At about 1,500 miles I started seeing a steady, noticable increase in MPGs. The onboard computer is sometimes fairly accurate, but fuelly will give you a better grasp on where you're at. I wouldnt worry about it.
