All I can think of is the obvious, like tire pressure, and proper maintnance. As much driving as I do I am thinking if it would be more cost effective to pull my tune out so I could run 89, and or filling with 89 and adding octane booster. Also what kind of milage improvements you guys getting after adding bolt ons like cai and pulleys. Currently I am getting 24mpg.
