Get a K&N Air Filter.Here's how to do it without spending any money: Drive slower.

Drive smart. Buy the good oil, plugs, filters and so on. Things like good plugs and filters will last longer and actually last longer too. Try to limit your RPMs too. The lower RPMs you have, the less fuel being burned. Use the fact that you have a manual trans to shift up so you can keep higher speeds with lower RPMs. Also, avoid jackrabbit starts, slamming on the brakes and racing between stop lights.

Just get a tune up and make sure everything is working right. Don't get any of those stupid additives, nothing works. Also the way you drive can affect your gas mileage. Don't be a led foot and stomp on the gas all the time.

Slow down, tests have shown that 75 vs 65MPH costs you 4-5 MPG. Anticipate red lights and stop signs by coasting up to them rather than running up and slamming on the brakes. Don't tailgate, so that when the guy ahead farts you don't have to get on the brake. Accelerate slowly instead of jack rabbit starts. And use the cruise control out on open level road when you can. All of these will help to improve your gas mileage.

My K&N intake got me about 1mpg better on the highway. Or you could get your car a tune up, and drive smart.
