Yeah... we need more details on the car ... and agreed about the light foot possibly being counterproductive. Not that a lead foot is better, but a well-calibrated throttle position is what a gauge is designed to help you accomplish. Since you drive so little, you might just use a good paid torque app on a smartphone if you already have one (can be much cheaper than a dedicated gauge). more deets please...
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
