Does the "don't coaset in neutral" thing apply for manual cars too then?
The US EPA rating system changed in '08 and used to be more optimistic too. The '07 Focus window sticker said 27/34, but the "new" ratings (under the '08 system) on fueleconomy.gov are 23/31. That would suggest that the '12 Focus manual would be rated at 29/39 under the old system, much closer to the current Canadian rating of 30/42.
