Easy on the take offs, try to keep boost below 10psi, FICM tune, air up your tires, use synthetic oils, ceatene fuel additive, don't let idling too long, these are just some that may help.

If all else fails, strap a team of horses to the front!! LOL!!

Hell.....burnin the tires off, towing, or grandma'n it dosnt make any difference mpg still sucks. I was hoping the new hpop, and new tunes would help but no dice.
I just ordered a ficm tuner, we'll see if that helps.
