29-34 mpg for a zx2 is excellent mileage. Bear in mind you have 4 valves per cylinder instead of 2 and have 20 more HP than a conventional Escort. I have a 97 SOHC and get 33mpg. You should get an extra couple mpg with the iridium plugs. Other than what you've done, keep your tires aired up and you'll continue to get excellent mileage.

Just to update I got 41 mpg on a trip to Denver from Grand Junction. DAMN! All after new spark plugs (autolite irridiums) fuel filter air filter and oil change . the kicker is there's a massive mountain to climb to get there and i still did that good. So far around town i've been getting around 34 mpg pretty f'ing excited bout that.
