Give it some time. These transmissions can exhibit some pretty weird behavior, mine did. That should clear up and the fuel mileage will come up. I do all city driving and when it was new I have gotten as low as 19mpg. I am at 4,500 miles now and my last tank was 26.4mpg. It seems like it has way more power than it did and I wind up giving less throttle to get the job done.
