    upgrade exhaust, upgrade air intake(K&N cold air or basic K&N high air flow filter), switch plugs to premium(e3 for ex.), upgrade ignition cables or coils to high performance type(accel's are pretty good and cheaper than OEM replacements), upgrade oil to synthetic(with periodic conditioning additives; duralube every third oil change). check your suspension. modify your driving style will help also. A tonue cover will also cut wind resistance. periodic fuel additves(stab-bil ethanol treatment) will also help.
