Smiles per gallon has to be more important than mpg, even though mpg is good.

Mine has 15k on it now and I get 49 to 52 around town... 42-44 on a high speed (70+) highway tankful and I've gotten as high as 63 mpg on a leisurely days drive while out west touring and in no hurry to get anywhere quickly.
Yours should climb into the high 40's/low 50's once she's broken in and you're reasonable with the throttle.

Also if you got the winter blend gas it will be lower. I noticed my last tank full was a big improvement over what i had been getting.
