35 should be doable. If you've gotten 31 before you can do it again, and every little mod helps. Stick to the 65+ mods list and the 100+ hypermiling tips and you'll get there. The aeromods will especially help if you're doing a lot of highway driving.

I wouldn't recommend heating the fuel. The ambient temperature has more to do with aerodynamics than engine efficiency (besides warmup penalties). It shouldn't hurt anything, but I don't think you'll see any real gain from it.
