Way better than new EPA mpg

2007 Lexus RX 350 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I characterize the RX-350 as a luxury small SUV (most call it a medium size. With 270 hp it keeps the lead footers mostly pleased and for the more average to docile drivers the 26.8 mpg that I recorded on a 330 mile stint on interstate 10 on cruise control at 71 mph is EPA busting. On a 1040 mile trip I recorded an average of 25.8 mpg. Now mind you I never exceeded 75 mph on this trip, but for the economy fan, where else are you going with that kind of power.
Fuel economy, exterior styling, rain sensing wipers, memory power seats, std radio (its very adequate), quiet ride.
Need to put the trip computer scroll button on the steering wheel, telescope wheel needs about one half inch more travel, trip comp distance and trip time reset every time ignition is turned off, trip comp mpg reads about 7% high but don't all cars?
