Was this just on one tank full? If so, I wouldn't get to excited just yet as that might be a fluke. I have had the wonderful mpg of 16.4 unloaded doing 68 on the interstate with cruise set on and I have only hit that one time despite most easily judged factors that affect mpg being the same.
Also you said you reset the trip. Are you talking about the trip odometer or are you talking about the trip computer? Depending on which it is, depends greatly on rather or not on how accurate this calculation is. For instance and I know this is due to my modified injectors for the most part, if I were to go off the trip computer when I got that 16.4, I should have actually have been getting 20.8.
Depending on those couple of things I wouldn't get to excited about it(and I do hate to burst your bubble on that as that is good mpg, but it just depends on a few things).
