Lot's of low hanging fruit in the areo area. But don't forget about the low hanging fruit with "Lightweighting". Tonight I broke 200lbs removed from my 2300 curb weight mazda Protege. Look around, see what you can do without. A/C, P/S, Back Seat, big battery when a small one will do, spare tire (AAA card is lighter then a Spare).
P.S. Normal commute is 5.5 miles and 23 stop lights. I never get above 35 mph so "lightweighting" is my thing.
