Best tune? What should I get

So I have custom tunes from MKM but it's only 105hp and I get about 13mpg. Where the economy tune I get about 18-20. I want power!!!!! And some milage. I mostly baby my truck but you have to mess with some people. I have herd that a hotter tune will get better milage if you keep your foot out of it. So that's what I'm looking for... Any suggestions?. Something looney tune ish. If you know what I mean

Tunes from KEM, Innovative, DJ's, or Tony Wildman will give you what you are looking for, just give them a call. You also might want to get yourself a set of gauges too
