unless you need to shift down to avoid slowing down too much on the highway leave it in 5th gear and let the speed drop off just a tad while going up hill, you can get the speed back up on the next down hill or flat. Really the best thing to help your mileage is data, get an instant fuel consumption display of some sort you will be able to see for your self. It will pay for it self.
