I'd say you're doing an excellent job, theguitarguy. I drove my daughter's '05 Grand Caravan, and only got 20 mpg on a 30 mile country road drive where I expected to get 25 mpg. My only suggestion for maximum mileage is to keep your top speed at 55 mph, instead of 65. That speed difference makes a 10 mpg fuel economy difference in my cars.
