All I can say is; do a lot of reading. You have great questions and there's a wealth of information to answer them far beyond what you had considered.
Welcome to the forums!

EDIT: Driving style is universally considered the biggest "mod" you can make to your vehicle. As Frank said, slower is better. With driving style alone (no engine-off coasting, mind you) I've never been within 5 MPG of my EPA estimate. Driving style goes a long way.
