Since your car is a 1995, it is pre OBDII. You can not use a Ultra Gauge or Scan Gauge mileage computer. You can however use a MPGuino sold here on this site. You would have to splice it into your wiring harness. It is not hard to do and gives you a ton of feedback. At the very least install a vacuum gauge to help you figure out if what your doing is a plus or minus.

The best thing you can do to improve your mpg is...

Adjust the nut behind the wheel...
