We have an Economy and a Super Economy. The Super Economy may be a bit neutered, so I'd go with the regular Economy. :Thumbup:

Yep but he specializes in tow tunes and if anyone needs a tow tune they need to call Doug but I am looking for someone who has made it a point to go out and actually write an economy tune. What is Jodys screen name on here?

22mpg's?! Awesome!

Hey Eric(ID), what do you think your eco tune will do? I'm driving to Vegas next week and need all the help I can get.

I pull 21-23mpg consistantly with the Xtreme program on the highway. If you can keep your foot out of it, the Xtreme and Economy will yield pretty similar mileage. The Economy program is basically just restraint by brute force...pulling fuel no matter where you have the pedal. :93C_peelo

I would rather keep my foot out of it with a hot tune and know it's there if I want it.....rather then castrate my mods by pulling fuel......but then Im just sick that way I guess....
