Best mileage is 14.7 to 1 (theoretically) with down hills with light throttle higher than this. High performance... 13 or high 12s or whatever feels best but definitely lower numbers. The gauge won't tell you the best numbers to run, just the numbers you are running at.

Yes. Better slightly lean than slightly rich and not burning it all up. If lean, running higher compression helps and I think newer cars are now going up in compression. Direct injection can run into the 20s because the fuel is not mixed thoroughly over all the combustion chamber but only in a small cloud around/near the spark plug is at the correct ratio.
