Question New 2017 Cruze 1.4L - WHERE TO START?

I just purchased a new 2017 Chevy Cruze LT Hatchback w/1.4L Turbo.

So far, it's a fun vehicle...and haven't even put 1,000mi on it yet! According to the on board computer, I'm getting between 30.5-32.5 mpg...and on one day, topping out at 40.1 mpg. what?! It's definitely getting modified!!...but what to do first?

I want to make changes that improve fuel efficiency, without making permanent modifications to the body of the vehicle (swapping parts is ok, I'll save the stock parts).

Where should I start?

A chip?
Air cleaner?
Make air dams for the inside of the grill?
Other improvements?

I'm writing, because I honestly don't know where to start, to gain the greatest bang for the buck... What's the best route to take?

If I go with a chip (and I probably will before too long), which brand works best? What is the best option that will NOT void factory warranty etc...?

I'm looking for advice, and hoping someone has already started down this path.

Thanks in advance!
