Get a scan gauge or equivalent, I went from 32 MPG to 40.2 MPG just by using the SG to change my driving habits. the SG saved me $276 in the first year. For you the same MPG jump would be about double the savings because of your lower MPG starting point.

Keep up the good work!
Agreed, I went from low to mid 30s to low 40s by mainly the scan gauge ^.^
