You can NOT measure gas mileage using the stated capacity of the tank.
How many gallons did you actually put IN the tank when you filled it ?
When the gauge points to empty, there typically is still 3 gallons left; when my C starts blinking the low fuel light, there still is two left.
And......the EPA estimates are just that, an estimate. How you drive and where you drive makes a big difference.
Almost all the cars with in-dash fuel mileage displays end up being 2-4 MPH on the high side.
There are at least a few other owners with your model present on here; let's see what they have to say.
I think you need to go a couple of more fillups and see what the actual mileage turns out to be.
