depending on your foot I have experienced HP tunes = mo better MPG

That bein said I haven't driven the 310 in a hell of a long time due to bucking and gettin crazy on the highway.. Got te 275? It should do the trick.

Plus if you really need to you can toy with some people on the highway! Really tho, I wouldn't worry about going outa the 200's tune wise on a long trip. I actually really liked the way the 250 drove also. My truck is sorta stuck on the 210 right now so it's been a while but our dually ran the 250 EVER day and loved it.

I'd vote for the 250 - City, highway or towing.

Better mpgs that the 210.

Better shifting than the 275.

I see in your sig you have the 275. If you are not towing, I would run the 275. How come you don't have the 250? Its available if you upgrade to strategy flash.

I have the upgrade just haven't downloaded it yet. guess I need to go ahead and do that. I won't be towing anything so if I don't get a chance to upgrade before I leave I will run the 275.
