For the gas burners you can try non ethanol gasoline. I realize its not available everywhere, but should be. I have noticed a 10% increase in my motorcycle and wife's car. Along with keeping the tires up, engine in tune, weight as low as possible, the largest effect I have had is keeping my foot off the skinny pedal. LOL!

As time marches on, you'll get less and less benefit from trying to catch the slipstream of a tractor/trailer rig. Just about all of them are running the side skirts now on their trailers. Some are running the perforated mudflaps to let air through. And just about any time I hit the highway now, I'll see a rig that has the trailer tail on it.

Don't know where you travel, we went from Concord, NC to Goshen, IN to Moline, IL to Knoxville, IA to Trenton, MO, to Lonoke, AR and back to NC around 3500 miles and never saw one station with non ethanol gas or on our way from NC to Orlando and back.

My town used to have about half of the stations that were non ethanol stations now within the last month all stations are e10. I hate it. Looks like the money I will be saving will be going towards buying fuel treatments.
