List all tools/techniques used to achieve current MPG: driving SLOWER, light on the pedal to maintain low RPMs, non-aggressive acceleration, timing green lights, coasting to stops (engine ON) instead of accelerating towards them, pulse & glide on the freeway (engine ON), pushing my car out of the driveway instead of starting the car first, not using the A/C, maintaining constant throttle (instead of constant speed), when on freeway--"driving without brakes"

all mods to my technique...none to my car
