Good question. Part is on car setup, design and part is driving style.
First off does your car use 100% gasoline or flex fuel/ ethanol? Ethanol gives less btu and mpg than gasoline.
Do you drive on the highway a lot of city stop n go?
Basically you want to make the car roll better with less energy and less waste. Check the car over first, tire psi, alignment. Check your use of the engine. Do you warm up the car or just jump in and go? Do you drive a lot of short trips or one long trip? Do you like to make left or right turns? What side of the road do you drive on in your country? In America we drive on the right and many lights let you turn right even if its red saving gas.
When you go ff for multiple stops do you go to the furthest one first, then the shorter ones on the way back?
