There isn't a hell of a lot that you can do for mileage. It sounds like you're doing fairly well, though I'm not sure if that is city, hiway, or combined.

I have the HEMI in my truck, and I tend to get 12-14 around town, 20-23 on the interstate, and about 15-17 if I do a bit of both.

The best way to see a marginal (and that is about all that you might see) improvement in mileage is to keep your foot out of it. You need to be driving Ms Daisy!
