Honestly, that sounds about right. I have a heavy foot and I believe I was getting in the 19-20 range.

Install a wide band oxygen sensor in place of a stock sensor:

I just got mine too, and am only averaging around 16 to 19... but I'm still playing with it quite a bit. Wait until some of the novelty wears off, then your MPG will probably go up.

Novelty will never wear off...

My baby was an '05 CTS-V, chrome factory Cadillac rims, K&N cold air intake, B&M short shifter and Corsa exhaust. Unfortunately I had to sell it because of a change of duty station, but owned it for about a year and a half and the novelty NEVER wore off. With the cold air intake, upgraded exhaust and the Diablo Tuner/programmer I never averaged more than 17.5MPG on a regular basis. The car is WAY TOO FUN to keep your foot off of the gas.
