Cheaper than the other options:

You might want to put a boost gauge in it. I usually have my vw in top gear by 30-35mph and driving sedately are important. A notebook and simple calculations will tell you if you are doing good or not.

The biggest thing you can do is to not drive your car as much. Although miles per gallon are important, more important is gallons per month. We are using about 3 gallons per month. Some months less than 1 and some months 5.
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe.

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”

Noah Webster, 1787
