2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg. Plano, TX

Mazda says you can run 87-octane gas perfectly fine on 2.5T or you simply just waste your money.3000 miles. Right at 23 MPG. My daily commute is a combination of stop/go and 65MPH+ stretches. I think the stop/go is what is keeping the MPG down.
I was able to get ~27MPG with my previous vehicle, a BMW Z4 28I, but that required 91 Octane. With the CX-5 I'm using 89 Octane which is currently about 20% Cheaper than 91 Octane, so I'm coming out roughly equal.
Here's the torque curve:
