If you can't have more than 28 mpg in this highway trip, there is definetly something fishy.

My MPG since I have the car (-1500 km) is 28.7, but the best I had was 39.5 in a round trip Montréal - Toronto.

I've done the reset which I do after each fill up. I drive 90% highway and 10% city. Granted out here in So. Cal. the freeway speeds are bit higher, usually between 70-80MPH. Anything less than that, you get run off the road practically. Even with those speeds, I'd still expect to see at least 30MPG.
