Your Fit is rated at 35mpg HIGHWAY while the Focus is rated 35 HIGHWAY! You have to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges, not highway to city, I will give you that the Fit has slightly better CITY mileage but thats all, don't confuse the two.
sti_sti is right your car has not broken in yet. I recently bought a 2010 Focus and at first my gas mileage was not great either but now that I have broken around 7k miles on it I am regularly getting a combined estimate of 33mpg, your's will too. Mine is an automatic transmission and I am a bit of a lead foot though I must confess, a friend of mine has a 2008 stick shift and drives nicer than I do and is nearing 37-38 mpg range.
