I'm averaging 20.9 calculated over five fills so far, and it's broken 40 degrees F maybe three days in those four weeks. Top two tanks were at 22.9 and 21.9, both of those with 90% of mileage at 70-75mph over relatively flat terrain. My regular daily commute is 2.5 miles each way, and lunch runs/errands are rarely even that far, so I don't expect good scores out of any tank with a week or more of commuting. Even my old '03 Jetta TDI manual would drop to 35mpg from its usual 42+ if I didn't leave town on a tank.
Also, if you have any interest in comparing mileage, sign up at Fuelly.com. It was pretty widely used among the TDI crowd, and it's super-convenient -- mobile and SMS entry, your choice of US/imperial or metric units, lots of reports and exports. Right now, I'm the only 2011 Forester there (can't link directly, not enough posts yet).
