Gas Mileage Performance/Increase/Information

What's the best ways to increase the mpg on a 7.3L PSD?

Here are some ways that will help and some I have done:
Intake
Programmer/Chip
Exhaust
Less amount of weight in truck
Smaller tires

Ways to increase mpg I have heard about:
Injectors
Upgraded Turbo
Upgraded turbo housing and wheel (if you don't do a complete turbo upgrade)
CNG kits (I heard you can make 40+ mpg with these)

If anyone has any others please post up things you know about, heard, have done/tried that works.

Post up your mpg ratings city/highway/over all if can to help others compare theirs to yours with what you have done to the truck and tire size ect...

Looking for ways to make and keep power and gain mpg as well.
