Power comes from burning fuel. Simple physics: more power = less mpg's. Only thing I can suggest is keeping tire pressure at or SLIGHTLY(2-3 psi max) above specification. This should help reduce "rolling resistance".  Any higher psi will cause rapid tire wearout.

Don't know if possible, but some sort of streamlined front cover for your ladders may also help.

Also, when not on the job, eliminating any unnecessary weight will help.

Those are all valid comments Gideon. My work is not going to be able to allow me to remove items from the van. My guess is the van is mostly over weight because of the rack system that is in it. At any rate there has got to be a module of some kind to increase power to the van. Looking to see if anyone has modified there van for more power,  throttle response or help getting more torque??

Nice rig. You have a 2 litre rated at 136 Hp, there is no real way to make more Hp with out raising the RPM's or installing some type of forced induction.  Both options will put more stress on the 4 Speed gearbox .

Make sure the cup holders are clear and buy better coffee for the Ride.
