Well I just changed my plugs and pvc valve it made a big differs in mpg, It took about 2 hours to change the plugs, you can get the pvc valve at napa parts for 26.00 plus tax. Also take off the air take and wipe down the tb plates front and back I bet they are covered in oil and crap.

Good Luck.

I get around 17 to 18 mpg at 63mph on highway (yes 63 so i don't have to pass anybody since everybody drive over the speed limit (65)).
