Ok I'll dumb it down considerably.

More throttle (say, half pedal), change up before 3500rpm and whenever the car can handle the next gear and still torque it's way through whatever you are trying to do.

When getting off the gas, don't stuff about, take your foot all the way off the pedal. Get off the gas early enough to drop 5-10mph (in your cruise gear) before you start braking for lights/stops/turns/whatever and you'll save a decent amount of fuel without pissing off other traffic.

Keep your tyres inflated to proper levels, leave the bar weights at home, make sure the engine is running correctly.
