Also I can afford the gas i am currently using but I would like to be more efficient with what i have and time added to my commute is not a huge issue to me. I have gotten 25mpg with it before 60mph from Toledo to Cleveland and back for a job interview. Additionally the drivetrain is in great shape even for a car with far less miles than she has, all cylinders have decent compression within +/- 10% and she goes through all gears and O/D functions well only thing i'll have trouble with is cruise control is out

EDIT: Also is it safe to over-inflate my tires like that? rating on tires says 35 PSI max and she's no featherweight
