none that i know of, just your driving style and habits. like keeping your car light (no junk or whatever), no jackrabbit starts, slow, easy acceleration, tire pressure, you probably know the drill.you can try mods that lighten your car, like lightweight rims, carbon fiber hood and trunk, lightweight fiberglass windows, interiors... they're pretty easy to install and will certainly help stretch your fuel tank's mileage, but they're not all cheap, though. and you'll probably wanna repaint your carbon fiber parts because you'll kinda look a bit weird with all those parts but taking off real slow.don't fall for those gas-saver devices, they ruin your engine in the long run. all they do is basically choke your engine.
