Mileage problem

HI

I have 2000 nissan maxima with 1,39,000 miles on it.
everyday I drive 100 miles, i am getting about 20 MPG.
Is there any way I can Increse my mileage little bit.
My car is running very fine regular oil change, air filter, tune ups ,tire breaks everything is up to date.

Few advice will be welcomed.

How about tornedo fuel saver - did any one used it.

Thanks
Vrod

Over inflate the tires.

Other than that, are you asking how to increase your mileage beyond what the engine was designed to use?

Turn off the air conditioning and you will see a big difference in mpg.
