Extreme tune or economy tune

I have these tunes from inovative and I've heard that you get the best gas milage from the extreme tune I was wondering if anyone else knows first hand if that is true or not. Also I just put an 8" lift with 37's on my truck and was also wondering what gas milage everyone else has with this set up.

I've always gotten better fuel economy out of the extreme race program myself

depends on how you drive but my guess is around thirteen if you get on it occasionally


If you like me and on it all the time thirteen sounds real good.

save on fuel with the extreme tune. How does that add up when you blow your gaskets out every year? :shrug:

I have 37"s and get around 14 mpg with a bullydog tripledog. The over head trip is always between 13-15. I keep it on the extreem , thats were I get the best milage. I tried the eco tune but got werse milage It has to do with the lift and tires. Hope this helps out:Thumbup: .

not you specifically just 6.0L's in general....as I'm told...or not, I guess it depends who's tickling the keyboard.

anyways, what's your MPG on the track? :

on the track I imagine somewhere around 100miles to the gallon or was that 100gallons to the mile I gave up trying to figure it out long ago it just hurts too bad when I try and keep track, I think Im gonna take up smoking, drinking, and drugs I figure in the long run these habits will cost less then my current habits of diesel addiction:smoke

I am running 4.30's and I get about 18 t0 19 mpg on my extream street and agr street. That is on the hwy at 65 to 70 mph max and if i keep my foot out of it. The only reason i blow 2 hgs and know have studs is that i tried to run a tow tune when pulling my 18000lbs 5th wheel. The programer was not an sct unit but a hypertech III on stg 2. My best advice is to pull heavy loads with a stock tune only and you will be fine. I really like my agr street because the EGT's arn't to high, it has good low end, the trans shifts fantastic and my mpg's are good. As soon as i unhook my 5er(my home) i install my agr street tune.
