wagovan in colorado

i figured i should join this forum.
i have a 89 honda civic wagovan(a real wagovan not a DX or RT4WD). i am wanting to get even better gas mileage.
i just measured my mileage for the first time, 31.5mpg 85% city 15% offroad

so far on my to-do list is:
taller tires on lighter wheels... rota auto X or konig helium with A/Ts would be ideal
find a d16 longblock, current d15b2 burns oil in #2 and #4.

down the road:
turbo setups increase gas mileage so long as you keep it out of boost, correct? or does that only apply to diesels?
if so i am considering running something that wont make boost till about 4kRPM. i kind of doubt a civic will be able to spool a turbo at any lower RPM so it should be easy to find a good turbo for that setup... hot pipe or small stock DSM SMIC for simplicity, extremely low boost like 5psi

pictures are attached because apparently you need 5 posts to use photobucket on here
as you can see in the third picture i have things to decrease my gas mileage too
