Is it a manual shift? cause if it is, always shift in the lowest power range possible, as all fuel consumption is RPM dependant.



If it is an automatic then simply ride the gas pedal as easily and slow-progressively as you can.



Stay Below 55 MPH or 90 Kph as that is the point at which the car starts pushing air forwards as opposed to simply having it split around the body.



Keep it well tuned, & index your spark plugs.

Either have it properly tuned. Or convert it too a chaper form of fuel such as cooking grease! It is possible but, expincive too have done ask a mechanic how to go about it!
