If you do not have a tonneau cover, that is a good investment. I tested my Dakota with and without the tonneau cover and everytime I install it, I gain 1 mpg.

I've read numerous posts about people getting better gas mileage with a tuner. I also think there is merit in this and would recommend it.

A good CAI should help mpg as well. I'm partial to the Vararam because it makes sense. I've read quite a few posts about success with Volant and a few others as well.

Once all the above, I'd finish by making the exhaust breath better. The terrible Y pipe on our trucks would be one area for improvement. Any good cat back should be benefitial. I personally plan to do all the above in the near future.
