Fusion 1.6L EB - An MPG Dud?

Pretty much all the '13 model midsize cars' EPA ratings are now released and looks like the Fusion in automatic guise is near the bottom of the pack. Despite its high-tech ecoboost plant. I thought superior fuel economy was the primary reason for going ecoboost across the Ford lineup. What's going on here guys?

Altima: 27/31/38
Accord: 27/30/36
Camry: 25/28/35
Sonata: 24/28/35
Fusion: 23/27/36
Malibu: 22/26/34

Technically the Fusion's combined rating is the only educated guess here. All other numbers have been officially released. But even if the Fusion somehow manages 28 combined, it's still at best tied with the Camry and the 2-year-old Sonata.

36 highway is a great rating and with the looks of the new Fusion, I'd settle with that combined mpg vs the competitors. Although, I'd go with the manual that's rated 25/37 (do the competitors even offer manuals?)

My 5mt Focus is rated at 36hwy... and I see 40+, so I'd put more stock in fuelly than the epa if I was concerned with fuel economy.
