improve gas mileage

hey, i've been searching for some ways to improve gas mileage and have a few questions. is it true that some spark plugs are better than others because they provide a bigger spark which burns more of the fuel and creates less waste.ex:http://www.densoiridium.com/index.php

i also saw some spark plug wires that seemed that they might help

if there are some that would benefit me could someone let me know pls. thank
i drive a 2002 chevy cavalier 2.2L 5spd

Those things will make a small difference. Your best bet is to just shift earlier, lol.

I can't imagine that the mileage would be ball-busting on a 2.2L...

I must need to see a doctor, because I have an inexplainable compulsion to ask questions when I see a post like this. Here goes anyway.

What kind of POS car do you have that only gets 6 mpg?
