I brought this up to my car dealer and he said to give it some time. I am not sure how long to give it though.

My gf recently got in my car and said "you only get 25 MPGs... my fusion gets that". The fuel efficiency is very underwhelming! Not happy at all with this.
PowerShift 6-speed automatic w/SelectShift 27 city/38 hwy/31 combined mpg

What the heck are complaining about? You are getting almost bang on the EPA rated city mpg and it is winter time.

Switch cars with your girl friend and see if you match her mpg in her Fusion and her in your Focus.

You can put 10 different drivers in the same car and get 10 different mpg results.
