You have stage 2 injectors and are asking about fuel economy? What are you seeing now when you drive respectively?

Drive slower. Put a 2x4 under the accelerator pedal. Never exceed 2000 RPM...EVER...

Run stock size tires or narrower at max. inflation pressure. Make sure your alignment is dead-on (toe is most important for mileage). Buy a cheap early-90's car for a commuter.
