Question for 2012 128i convert owners

Of course I'm loving this car, but I am really getting bummed out my mpg. Driving it in Germany I attributed the 22.0 mpg to European gas and the mountainous terrain. Once I started driving here in the US I got closer to 23.0 and assumed it would improve as I broke in the car. But I am now approaching 5000 miles and still am getting rather crappy gas consumption. The best I've gotten was a long trip totally on interstates where I averaged 27.3. The rest of the time I'm getting 22-23 mpg for secondary road (not city) driving. I'm not even close to the advertised mpg. Very disappointed.
