New to hypermiling

Hello to all. I'm new to hypermiling, but with gas prices like they are I'm sure there have been new people coming in everyday.

I currently drive a 1990 Mustang LX with the 2.3 liter and 5 speed standard. I'm interested in some ideas for modding my vehicle to increase efficiency. I was getting about 23 mpg with a mix of city and highway. I have been lurking for a little while now so I already increased my tire pressure to 44psi and have really been watching how I accelerate. I try to keep my highway speeds down to 60 mph. I have already seen an increase in mpg. I normally only get about 145 miles on half a tank, but with these few changes I'm up to 164.

I look forward to your ideas and saving gas.
