Greetings from the great southern land

Hi, Iv'e been reading ecomodder for some time and finaly decided to register.
These are my vehicles:

1984 Ford Falcon XE. 4.1L inline 6 carbureted (vaccum gauge fitted as standard from factory)
17.96mpg (US)
$38.92 fuel per week
179km per week

1996 Yamaha XJR400 400cc inline 4 carbureted
46.9mpg (US)
$14.01 fuel per week
165km per week

So basically I want to save more money. Obvious answer would be to ride the bike more. But I was wonering if anyone had any tips to make the car more efficient (other than selling it and getting a different one). Don't really want to make it look rediculous with ott aero mods (not there's anything wrong with that), most of my driving is in town at about 50km/h anyway.

Thanks and love the site!
