Thanks for the quick replies. However, as a husband I have more fiscal responsibilities than even the federal government, so I must be able to provide a measurable benefit in the foreseeable future.

Any guesses how many mpgs I could gain from such an undertaking? 2 mpgs? 5? More?

We like to travel fast (and while passing SUVs gloat about still burning half the fuel they are - sorry. ), so consider speeds at or slightly above the limit. We currently get about 37-38mpg on the freeway. 40 mpg would justify the undertaking, 45mpg at high freeway speeds would earn me a back massage from wifey.
