New Car Mileage

I got gas for the new car on the way home from work. The manual didn't "require" super unleaded gas but it was highly recommended so I paid $3.519/gallon at the Mobil/Exxon down the street.

For the first tank of gas, the trip computer said I drove ~35mph on average and calculated my overall fuel efficiency at ~24.6 miles per gallon... not bad for a 3.5L V6 rated at 290HP. I think slightly more than 1/2 the miles were highway miles so I don't know if the CVT is better on gas mileage than the ol'5-speed auto transmission in the Z.
