In terms of optimizing MPGs on the highway space between you & the car ahead of you = your friend. If you allow a lot of space that gives you time to instead of braking to let the car slow down on its own. Also don't goose the gas pedal when the car ahead of you gets moving take your sweet time getting up to speed if its stop & go traffic. You'll get there around the same time as "normal" driving people only with a few extra MPGs.
As far as mods there's not too many mods you can do to the car: I have a blue light kit on mine and have thought about adding a short ram intake. For those willing to spend a little more money there are cat back exhaust options on ebay and you can also get suspension upgrades too. I wouldn't advise lowering the car however as it already rides pretty low.
