Scangauge is your friend. Try different driving techniques and find out what gives you the best mileage.

My truck gets better mileage when I step on it and shift at 2500 RPM than if I accelerate like a grandma. I keep up with traffic doing that, so don't annoy others.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
