How to get better gas mileage

Hi everyone, recently i posted about some really bad gas mileage on my 98 f150 with the 4.6 v8. well thats gone. I've been upgrading my truck recently to get more power and gas mileage out of it. So far i have put on a mac straight shot cold air intake, a raised throttle body, a pulley underdrive kit and a bed cover. all of these things seems to help a lot, espically on the highway and i love the extra power. I was also thinking about incorporating an electronic supercharger into my intake system. Ive also heard of aftermarket mas-airflow sensors that allow more air flow and give you more power and mileage. Besides these upgrades and basic fuel system matinence, proper tire pressure, what else can you do to increase the gas mileage that you get out of your truck? I know that getting an electric radiator fan to replace the mechanical one helps a bit too but i havent had enough money to get that. Also wheels, mag wheels are light but expensive. Is there things you can do for weight reduction, or aerodynamics or do smoething else to the engine? Im tryin to find out all the possibilites before gas really goes through the roof. thanks
