Fuel fuel efficiency

I am about 550 miles into my Fiesta ST ownership, and it seems like my MPG gauge seems to finally have leveled out. However, this is very concerning because it has flattened at about 24 MPG. most of my driving is Highway and during my commute i definitely try to nanny it, shifting before 2 grand. This is my first manual car, so i wouldn't be surprised if I'm doing something wrong, but I would at least like to get to the low end of what the sticker fuel economy is during my commute. does anyone have any experience in this? what kind of MPG are people seeing?

I'm currently getting overall 32.8 mpg (93 octane) with 75% somewhat aggressive highway driving mostly on the weekends; I did the Break-in 101 thing - easy does it for first 1500 miles w/rpm variance, etc., and have already changed the oil twice and the transmission oil once (I'm currently at ~2400 miles) so maybe that helped, but who knows?
