Yes, that seems to be the norm, the onboard mgp calculator is higher than the manual calculation - but for my car it's the opposite (thus far):
for today's fillup - onboard mpg: 35.4
manual mpg: 36.4

This is almost all city driving, I'd say 90%...
I've been trying to accelerate gently since the car is new and it's still getting "broken in" - or is it? I remember the new car sales director at the dealership telling me the engines on new cars are broken in at the factory these days - I have also been coasting on occasion, (when feasible) when I see a red light up ahead...
Is 40 mpg a possibility?! I don't know, but 38 mpg for an automatic car that's a non-hybrid is pretty impressive if you ask me.
BTW, Intellichoice.com gave the 2012 Yaris LE it's highest rating (excellent) and it got 6 awards - I believe one was for fuel economy

Well, the gas mileage has dropped a little , I'm thinking maybe because of running the A/C more?
Per mpg car's computer: 35.9
Per manual calculation: 36.4
Still pretty good though!

again; amazing. Not to get off topic too far, but my Toyota Vibe as I call it got me 34 in/around town. After 55,000 miles, that is an all time high (manually calculated). I got this because I am retired, and am driving much more conservatively, to include avoiding jack rabbit starts. What a difference retirement makes

A friend of mine has a 2007 Vibe (she loves it) and has said the gas mileage is over 30 mpg city.

We have 2010 Yaris 4 door SE, auto with 21000 miles. Just came back from Smoky Moutians trip at 70 to 72 mph with cruise. We got 38 to 40 mpg round trip That includes 4 days driving in Pigeon Forge TN & Gatlinburg TN & two trips thru Cades Cove Nature Trail. 1400 miles round trip

Most recent fillup:
Onboard mpg computer: 35.9
My calculation: 35.4
Well, it looks like 38.1 mpg isn't going to happen again, 35.4 still pretty impressive though - perhaps the decrease in mpg is due to my driving technique, I'm probably not as "cautious" or "gentle" now that I've got over 3,200 miles on the odometer (well past the break-in period) - that plus using the A/C so much due to the warmer weather -

Managed 39 mpg for the first time, and the onboard computer read 39.4 so it seems like it might be learning or something, and is certainly now within the margin of error inherent in when the pump chooses to shut off.
Seems like the switch to summer blend has improved the mileage a bit even though I am now using the A/C a lot of the time.
