I replaced my spark plugs with E3's and wow what a difference. Even tho my Motorhome has only 53,000 on it. It runs so smooth now and I can see the change in gas mileage. What a difference. Spark plugs cost me around 6 or 7 bucks each but well worth it.

I drive 55-60 mph most of the time. general rule is slower equals less gas consumed.

I pull a toad. I get two vehicles from A to B by using roughly the same amount of fuel. Obviously this doubles my fuel mileage. Do the math.

The weight of my 5th wheel on my truck makes it ride better and it squats some what. By squatting it makes it more aerodynamic and I get much better mileage. I also put E3s spark plugs in my diesel and got an extra 3 miles to the gallon. I am now up to 32 miles to the gallon.

I just do 2 things drive by my tach 1900 Rpm (59 MPH) and when I come to a hill a don't allow the 4 barrel to kick in. The only thing I changed was my driving habits. Ditto Cloud Dancer = less fuel consumed!
