Default better MPG @ rpm < 2500

so i've been trying to keep the car running at mostly 2000 rpm (occasionally 2500, only 1 time 3000)
and i got a pretty good MPG of 24 MPG! (coming from 18MPG during the winter, and me stepping hard on the gas- most of the time at least 2500rpm) also had the AC on for about total 1 hour since the last fuelup.
2006 PT 37K 20MPG
