Getting interested in saving gas

I've got a 1993 Honda Accord Lx coupe, it's my first car and I like it quite a bit. THe previous owner was getting around 31 in town. I've replaced the air filter with a short ram AEM intake and modified my driving habits to get about 37 in town. Hoping to get it up to 40!

The short ram will help in the winter and hurt you in the summer. Heat soak is a double edge sword on Hondas.
