It might, but it could also be that if the 2011 2LS technically were rated at (I'm just making these numbers up) 29.7 mpg and this gets 30.3, they would both be rounded to 30 mpg even though the new engine is a bit more efficient.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
