Same here. My pony's tires are inflated to 32 PSI, as recommended by Ford. I don't EOC, DWL, P&G, or draft. Most people (present company excluded ) are amazed by the fuel economy I've managed to squeeze out of a performance car that (according to the EPA) should get between 17 and 25 MPG. I have a friend at work who gets 29 MPG out of his Focus. My last 4 consecutive fill-ups in my Mustang have been in the 31's.
The most powerful tool for better MPG is between your ears.
