2006 Odyssey - What to do?

My mom's 2006 Odyssey is a bit of a gas hog (4375LB of car would be). Though it is EX-L, so it can do the whole "VCM" thing... We're not too heavily into ecomodding (no buying Scan Gauges and the like), but efficient driving is another story. I got 27MPG on the highway @ 65MPH driving from Chicago to Bloomington-Normal. I'm not sure what around-town is right now (it's not even my car anyway) but we usually get 17MPG, even with the A/C on all the time.

What insights do others (especially other Odyssey owners) have for me?

Thanks!

If you want to drive efficiently, a ScanGauge really is a wonderful tool.
