All i have done is change the oil to full synthetic and replaced my air filter less then 5k miles ago
Which, "full synthetic", did you purchase, the Group III, "synthetic oil", which merely comes from petroleum oil, or the real McCoy better performing Group IV P.A.O., or Ester based synthetic oil?

Far as mods go I am 100% stock with 5 speed manual trans and I shift ~3000-3500 rpms with the occasional 5-6000 rpm shift while merging on to the highway. Average speed on highway is 75-80mph
Why do you drive so darned fast? I've read for every 1 mph over 65 mph we can expect to lose 1 mpg. Slow down and save money, as well as having virtually everything in your car lasting longer.

I know we can run a tune for power but is there a tune for economy?

31mpg has been the normal since I got the car. Highest was 35. Lowest was 29. Not sure why I see higher numbers, and it isn't my driving lol. 65-70 on cruise on highways, no quick accelerations, etc etc.
