Breathing mods. All of them. And a proper tune. Id say a CAI, TB/Plenum, O/R H/X pipe, are your best bet. Get the air in and out better. The tune just keeps everything running right. I saw an increase of 4mpg on my 96GT with a CAI, O/R H, catback, and tune. I run premium all the time.

I noticed with my Steeda under drive pulleys that the engine dropped by 250 RPMs to obtain the same MPH as before.

All the things listed above will take tens of thousands of miles to recoup your costs. Just learn to drive better, best savings you'll see.

Use a vacuum gauge. As long as your engine is making vacuum you're using less fuel then when there is no vacuum. It's an easy way to see how heavy your foot is in real time.

Check into a fitch fuel catalist ( I don't think I spelled that right lol) they have been proven to increase fuel milage. They purify fuel making it burn better.

Well I live in Texas I have to drive about 35 miles one way to work, so gas mileage is slightly important lol, I'm doing a tune up on her, got new tires. Right now in getting around 15 total mpg so I wont complain!

Keep your rpms below 2. That's about it besides letting your car breathe, but like stated above it will take forever to recoupe money
