5.7L -> 2.0L MPG N00B checking in!!!

Hello, this is my first time attempting to modify a car for more MPG not HP . I have a 95 Caprice Impala SS clone and a 98 Escort ZX2 5spd. The best MPG I have managed to get out of the escort is about 28MPG with about %80 highway driving. I"m hoping to squeeze about 35 out of it. The forums look good with a wealth of knowledge. I'm hoping to find out just what RPM to drive the car at on the highway since the car screams at 3200 at 70MPH. Hopefully some people on here have modded the ZX2. Anyway, hope to get some questions answered here. Thanks, hope to hear from some of you on the forums.
