Running a full synthetic 5W-30 cycle oil can help also, as will running 87 without ethanol if you can get it.
Don't be afraid to spin the engine up once it's fully warm. Accelerating briskly and shifting at torque peak, instead of accelerating gently, until you are at cruising speed usually nets the best economy.
We should really start a new thread with economy tips. Forum members sendler and greenaero are both FE experts, and forgot more about getting max economy than most of us know...
I had friends that lived in St. Charles when i lived in Mt. Prospect, IL, a few years back. Now in S Central WI. Less cars, more tractors on the road.
