Lost MPG in My Newly Aquired Focus [Q]


I currently own two 2008 Ford Focus's, one is Blue with an Automatic Transmission and one is Black is a Manual transmission.

So I have just acquired the Black 2008 Focus SES with Manual Transmission used and noticed that the MPG is low, 28MPG normal driving when my other focus the doing the same amount of driving gets 35+ MPG.

I was wondering if anyone had any idea's I brought this up to the dealer from which I acquired it, and they responded, "We cant find anything wrong with it" and "The advertised mileage is not often achieved." Also they gave me a rental... 2009 Focus which I achieved 38 MPG over 2 tanks of gas. So in my opinion there must be something wrong with my Black Focus.

So does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to fix/check for some problems that may be causing this?

P.S. I have tried Seafoam treatment in the gas no effect.
