It must be either the older ones have been broken in or hyper-miler types are early adapters. Has anyone else who's noticed that care to posit why that might be? WRT milage after break in, mine in the Mirage has not gone up, though I'm probably driving it with a little less regard to maximizing fuel economy.

    Now, I don't know your driving style, but I suggest you try driving techniques that maximize fuel economy for at least one tank. The Mirage will definitely reward your efforts here!

    To help with this, consider getting some means to monitor your instant fuel economy from your OBDII port. Many here use something like ScanGauge, but I got a bluetooth adapter and use an app on my smart phone to get more info, including logging. Though cheap ELM327 OBDII adapters are available, I paid for better quality with faster response and more features, and it cost one third what the ScanGauge goes for. Knowing instant fuel economy can give helpful feedback to train your driving style to reduce fuel consumption.
