cold air intake(decent gains.about 3-5 with tune), conservative tune, replace fuel filter (i swear i lost city mileage when i replaced mine but improved highway...in theory it works), put a block of wood under the gas pedal so you cant mash it to the floor every time you drive,TB spacer (improved mine by 1mpg).

all thats about....$450 assuming you dont need to buy a block of wood.

What's your gas mileage now?
In my 1989 5.0 I get a constant 18 MPG city and 22 MPG HI way.
I can get 24 MPG on the Hi way if I drive with a light foot.

A stock fox on the hwy is capable of nearing 30 mph if driven properly, I've seen that on a motor with diff top end and stock bottom end. 28 mph solid. Around town depends on how u drive. Lots of people do not know how to shift properly which negatively effects gas mileage as well as improper tune, carb adjustment, etc. you can always put lighter gears in back. 1.56's or something.

Maybe depends on terrain as well. I was on i10 going from Texas to AZ and averaged about 25. All stock 85 gt t5. But we digress. Op you can do gears or as previously suggested a block of wood. Other than that...lose the 5.0

I remember how I drove in High School ...... just drive with a lighter foot and you'll increase your MPG.

Yea man just drive normal and you should be all set, and just to clear things up there really is not cheap and easy tune for you to get better gas mileage.....so I would not recommend getting a cai and tb spacer, and getting your car "tuned" cause you would either have to get the 4 bank chip from am or a 500 dollar dyno tune and both them won't help your cars mph very much

Make sure your tune up is good. Plugs good and gapped correctly, air filter clean and fuel filter too.
