New computer after 300 miles!

Purchased car this month and after 300 miles, the computer went out and left us stranded in the middle of 5 lanes of traffic...sideways! Dealer very helpful and gave us a loaner car and replaced computer in less than a week. Very happy customer with this dealership. When accelerating from a stop, sometimes...sometimes...it feels like power is not constant. Almost like driving a turbo with turbo lag.
Much more fun to drive than either the Toyota or Honda vans. More sporty feel perhaps because of smaller size. Has a little of that "zoom-zoom" feeling.
Since van is smaller, engine should be more fuel efficient. My first tank produced 18 mpg and the 2nd tank only 16 mpg. Both tanks city driving; 2nd tank while weather was 5 degrees hotter outside, that's the only difference. A/T could be more refined.
