We are only getting 23 ish on the highway. I guess I can never measure it accurately because all our long trips are done with the car fully loaded inside (kids) and a filled cargo box on top. Plus having kids brings a lot of urgency to the trip 80-90MPH R US.
I think 23-24 MPG is outstanding!

On my 08 Manual. I typically got 26-28 can get it to 29 if I pay attention. Then I added the AEM CAI and it went essentially to 27-29MPG.
I'd also suggest being a bit cautious on assumptions based on Scanguage information, prediciated on shifting to neutral versus just letting up. There are some electronics involved there that may not be giving you the information you think you are getting.
#437 of 437 24.5 MPG (9.6 L/100km)

24.5 MPG overall average. My average city tank is 22 MPG, my worst city tank is 19.5 MPG, my average highway trip is 28 MPG And my best highway tank is 35 MPG just a few days ago. I was driving slow (55-60 MPH) due to below freezing temperatures and risk of ice on the twisty mountain road.
