What I Drive: 2012 SE Hatch manual sport package

First post and the new owner of an SE sport manual hatch. I am getting very low MPG somewhere around 20.2 mostly city and I have a question about the shift light. My other car I drove for 20 years was a 92 manual paseo and it always got in the upper 30's. I would shift it around 2-2200 rpm and it did just fine. The new focus tells me to shift WAY before that and even tells me to shift into 5th at 35mph? I have under 200 miles on the vehicle and I am sure the mileage will get better. Is the shift light this quick for other manual users ? Could my software be screwed up? I have been following when it tells me to shift except when it says shift into 5th when going 35mph. The difference in technology in 20 years is amazing! I hope the focus makes it to 520,000 like the paseo did! I am loving the car! Any insight into the shift light would be appreciated.
