I'm not sure how that particular transmission sensor works, but it is conceivable that tilting at such a grade could cause the sensor to become confused- lack of fluid perhaps. The fuel economy will improve over time- mine did, right about the time I was ready to take it back because it didn't live up to my expectations. With reserved driving techniques you should be able to get 40 mpg hwy, but I doubt combined will be that high.
