I have an edge evolution on my 96 PSD. Of the three settings 60, 80, 100 which one will I gain the most mileage from?

It will vary from truck to truck. On early 94-97 there is no gains beyond the 80hp setting as you are limited to what your turbo and injectors can do for you.

I would run it for a full tnak on the 80, and then run it at the 60 and see which works best for you beased on your driving habbits.

I would go with the 80 horse setting for good all around perfomance

:welcome2: You would see the most gains at the mid level, as long as you can keep the foot off the floorboards!:sly:

legacy76,

Lots of variables here based on the other mods you have or don't have. The higher the HP level the better the MPG if you have enough air to mix with the fuel to get full combustion, AKA full BTU use of the fuel then you'll be better on the highest HP level available. The other thing is the higher HP levels have a more responsive throttle, if you don't learn to drive with a much easier foot then you can have a little more of a "jack rabbit" starts and that can cause less MPG. So basically you need to make sure you have MAX air in and out, run on the highest HP level if you can control the off line throttle response. If you can't get that light throttle touch then drop back a HP level as it wil be less responsive and easier to control etc.
