I didn't know that ... they're nice fast cars, but I couldn't deal with the 20+/- gas mileage.
So far my display is hovering about 35 and change MPG with about 25% highway and the rest rural driving. At 2100 RPM at 70 MPH I have no doubt it will get 40 or so on the highway, which is what I require due to the amount of driving that I do. From what I remember, at 70 MPH, my 5 speed Focus was taching about 3000.
