New guy with SC2

I have two cars a Camaro Z28 and a 1994 Saturn SC2 for my daily. I am looking to learn techniques and methods to boost my fuel economy on my saturn it is not a necessity but rather a challenge but I am hoping to see if I can maybe pull 40mpg. Any input appreciated!

Welcome to the site!

40 mpg shouldn't be a problem at all. 50 mpg will require some effort though.

I recommend you start here: 100+ Hypermiling / ecodriving tips & tactics for better mpg - EcoModder.com

Thanks! And I will first try to get 40 and then set a goal at 45 and so on see how high I can get without spending more than a couple hundred dollars.
