Well you can certainly learn a lot from this site. The first thing you should do is find out what mpg you 'should' be getting according to the new EPA standards. One of the biggest changes you can make is changing the way you currently drive. Aerodynamics can only go so far, but if you're still driving 80mph on a highway and never coasting then you're not going to gain much. Having a manual transmission does help. Have fun.
Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.
