Yes, Spartan is the tuner of choice. The best Mileage tune is probably gonna be the 275 tune. I prefer pulling with the 150 or 210 tunes. And as you may know you get 3 tunes when you buy it. the 275 will cost another 300 bucks. That should give you around 3 more mpg's.

how heavy of a load max do they recomend with the 275 tune? loaded witch tune gets best mpg? I haul repo rv's one way everyday.

I get the best mileage with the 275 around 17 on the high way with 37s 14 around town.
14 or so towing on the highway as well.

I tow mostly around 5000-10,000 pounds not much more or less then that. I tow with the 275 with no complaints, there are no high limits so you have to watch your gauges but its a good tow file. The 210 is great to just drive with no smoke, good power, decent shifts, built in safety's for towing.

Some guys on here have pulled over 20K with the 275 tune. But i do believe the temps will get Hot if your going far. Im thinking the 210 might be your best bet on good mileage. If i were you i would get the 75, 150, 210 and 275 tunes. the 150 and 210 tunes pull like freight trains even when pulling a big load.

You can also set alarms on the Dash Daq when your boost, RPM, temps, etc are getting too high.
