The grill blocking is mainly about aerodynamics. I don't have lean burn on my 98 Civic. Check my page for other notes you might find useful, though. Also, look at the links at the top of the page "65+ mods" and "100+ hypermiling tips".

Tire pressure is a good freebie. Drive speed limit.

Is the car auto trans or manual?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
