Results of hypermiling so far...

I just bought a Fiat 500. As you can imagine, I drove it like a bat out of hell using the dealer's complementary first tank and it lasted about a week. Fuelly reported that I got 27mpg. So I switched to hypermiling and the results are 33mpg.

The engine is hardly broken in and hasn't hit 1000 miles yet.

27 to 33 seems ok, I wonder if I can do better? How much can the MPG improve over time? How long does it usually take for an engine to become more efficient?
