If you have a fixed daily route, and have charging ability (i.e have a garage or close to a plug at work) then completely removing the alternator is a very good option. But then you have to trat your car as a electrical vehicle.

%10 improvement is really significant.

You have to measure how many W your car consumes and then calculate the size of your battery.

A 2 battery system (or capacitors + battery) can be used to keep the car at whatever voltage is needed.
