Wanting better mpg out of versa

Hope everyone is doing well. I am Chad from Alabama.Been looking arround for ways of getting better mpg and this site seems to come up in every search. Had a 2009 versa (ac and radio delete) that I totaled month ago. It had a home made ram air, k&n filter and 1" taller tires. Not real sure what mpg it was getting but taller tire helped get over terraces in pasture and ram air seemed to help pick up power to pull the higher final ratio. Got a truck now just wanting more mpg out of my identical 2009 versa I bought to replace the first one.
I know how to make things go faster, been studying that for 30 years but this economy stuff is new to me. From what I have saw so far I can't think of anything that hasn't been tried.
My present versa is getting 36.04 mpg average (mostly highway) for 1760 miles with only a k&n filter. I will start a thread on my achievements and failures in the near future.
