I would say a 100-120 setting if you can keep your foot out of it...

I would say 80; 100 and 120 are to tempting to not keep your foot out of it:evil:

I got my best MPG while in the 80 setting 17 +/- MPG. Try your 75 for a while.... I just watched the fuel gauge laugh while I used the 140 setting, and me smile while I left soot on CSIPSD hood LOL.....

Mine seems to get the best mileage in the 75hp setting. Only makes a little bit of black smoke when I get on it...

The new ones I have has a 185 hp setting! I guess I should ask them about that.....
as it stands now anything over 120, even 100 in some cases is gonna need upgraded oil and probably injectors to get any use out of the programing...IMO

your truck will run like crap.

My 6 pos chip doesnt even have the 140 setting on it....

the guys at Elite Diesel told me people were running stock trucks on that setting as a smoke file and causing problems.

So cause i knew i would be tempted to use the 140 setting for that reason,,, i had them not put it on.

if i get new injectors or something, im gonna need the chip reburned anyways.... then they can put the 140 setting back on there when the rest of the engine can keep up with it.

I personally run in the 50 tow setting, it isn't too tempting to slam the go pedal, and at 60 mph I can pull 19 mpg
