First of all you gotta adjust the nut behind the wheel. That would be you.

Yeah, its written for hybrid drivers but it has all the basics of how to drive to get better MPG
. Filter off the parts you can't use and implement what you can. Forget his politics. The dude routinely gets 47 MPG
from a dead-stock Ranger and over 100 MPG
from a Honda Insight. He's got the goods.
under 600 is doable but requires you to pay attention.
Boost is irrelevant. Under 600 degrees you might get 1-3 psi
Keep RPM as low as possible.
Don't worry about intake/exhaust. It has no effect on MPG
Forget tunes. They make no difference.
The OEM-sized rubber is the best.
Check your brakes for dragging. A little rust makes them swell at the edges and brake drag hurts MPG
Check your EBPV
. Mine stuck open from September to May regardless of how warm I got the truck. Its like running with an exhaust brake working 'cause that's exactly what it is. I finally got it closed in summer and electrically disconnected it.
Clean up your aerodynamics. If you can live with a tonneau, it is good for 1.5 MPG
. Hard or soft. Both work.
Reboot you ECM. Disconnect the batteries for a couple minutes and reconnect. Sometime the ECM get corrupted and needs to be refreshed.
Works for me.
