Tuner Fuel milage

I have the XRT with all the deletes and set to 60HP increase, I wanted to if there is a HP setting you guys are using that seams to get better mileage. City I am getting about 14-15. Highway 70-80mph around 15-17. Towing drops to around 14.

What are you other setting such as turbo tuning? and what are you towing that you get 14? Or is this all from the overhead, for some reason I bet this is overhead..

Running stock turbo. Towing 7000lb boat and construction trailer 5-7 tons depending on day. 14 is high for construction trailer those days the overhead is around 11-12.5

IMO the over heads are about worthless. There are so many variables they just cant account for! Try some hand calcs on all the levels. Say run each setting for a week. And see what each one turns up. Just a thought.

I actually from time to time get better than what my overhead says.. that being said, I ONLY hand calc.
