sticky

Near the top of this forum page is a sticky which lists decades of mods reported on,and their influence on mpg.
By looking through those you may be able to "cookbook" mods on paper and see if they make sense for their time/trouble/cost-return.
You realize that you have one of the worst candidates for increased mpg,however,if you're going to keep the beast for a significant length of time,it's the best candidate and it's paid for.
Weight,rolling resistance,frontal area and drag coefficient are your areas of interest.
The sticky will show what you might expect from any mod,then you decide if it's worth it to you.
Extreme Project!
