I would like to add, beyond just driving techniques I am a firm believer that a well-maintained vehicle gets better mpg also. So, time to do the oil change and spark plugs and air filter and fuel filter and all that stuff, start keeping up on that...

Just doing ALL of the maintenance I can do myself helps me gain 10-20% better mpg, the rest, yes, is driving.

That is what I see all too often, just like they say...
Folks all excited about making these extreme modifications...
Yet the car hasn't seen any real maintenance since its purchase, so to speak.
And the driving is just everyday stuff, too.

So yeah...
Driving and DIY car maintenance first, mods later.
