Since its a new car to you.. have you changed all the fluids and filters? (oil, fuel, air ect..)

Also, how are you shifting? If driven modestly, the manual should be getting better mpg than the auto. If you are shifting late and taking it to redline each gear, then it obviously will hurt your mpg.
