    get some weight out of it. don't drive aggressively. make sure your air/fuel filters are good. make sure tires are inflated fully.

    Maybe because your car is almost 20 years old?

    Avoid fast acceleration... Whenever I'm in gas saving mood, I try not to rev my engine over 3000 rpm

    Not sure how tuned your car is from the factory, but take some connection cleaner (don't feel like googleing it) and clean all the electrical connectors. If there's a lot of corrosion on the wire connects, your ecu won't be getting as good of a reading.
