I have a '90 Integra, and I've been managing upper 30's lately, and got over 40 once just by shifting as early as the engine will tolerate, and coasting in neutral as much as possible. I generally shift at around 2k rpm, and I often skip 4th gear, making it into 5th by ~20mph. I don't have any instrumentation in my vehicle yet, and I also share the car with my girlfriend, so my testing methods are not as scientific as they could be, but from what I can tell the best thing you can do is to learn your routes really well and avoid traffic so that you can do as much coasting as possible. Good luck and thanks for starting this thread - I'll be keeping my eye on it for ideas too!
