Default Scion xa manual highway mileage ?

I have a 2006 scion xa stick shift with 22k miles on it. It's in excellent condition. I finally took it on the highway and I averaged 20 mpg....it's supposed to get around 37 on the highway. I'm putting it in 5th gear and averaging 80 miles an hour . What the heck is going on. Is there an overdrive option or what?

It surely won't get 37 at 80 MPH, maybe if you stay no higher than 65. I would suspect it should still do better than 20, however. Are your plugs still original? Filters?
