My 2008 2.5i 5MT has been getting between 28 and 29 (per the computer) on the 250 mile round trip to my country place. Its half freeway and half country highway. I haven't been using cruise but do try to hold it to 70 MPH or less. Its usually me, my wife, our dog, and probably 100 pounds of stuff.
I think the Subaru is pretty sensitive to driving style. I used to have a Jeep Grand Cherokee v8, and no matter how you drove it or what the load was, it always got 14.5.
