Keep you air filter clean, keep your tires inflated to the proper specs.

Try to be in overdrive as much as possible, the usual stuff. Phone the diesel injection shops and ask them if they carry Stanadyne diesel fuel treatment. IT should give you a boost in your mileage. There is supposed to be a screw on the injection pump but i don;t know anything about how to mess with it.
