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?

hmmm. odd. would there be an easy way to check my alignment? I'm not all that good a wrench.
I stay around 65 as well. it has crept up to 26 since i posted, but that's still not great. im assuming that its becasue of what the Ford rep above said.
I have not.
I think Ill try that once i hit 1000 miles
I'm getting about 7L /100km (About 32 MPG), which is a lot better than I did in the first thousand miles. That's with some good acceleration and city driving mixed in.
Its all about that "good acceleration" :)
