This is going to sound counter productive to FE, but if you are just driving the car in the city all of the time it might help to take it out on the highway every once in a while and open it up. This will help keep the engine cleaned out and may help your FE. I'm not suggesting doing this every day, but to do it once or twice a month would probably be beneficial.
