Best Daily Driver Tune?

I currently running the SRL tune from gearhead and love it. I was wondering if there is any other tunes you would recommend as a daily driving tune? Maybe matt's tow tune or innovative street tune? Suggestions please.... I would like better mpg I am only getting 13 around town and that is being easy on the pedal.

My looney rides great around town...haven't calculated mileage yet. Matt might be able to tweak your tune to get some nicer mpg's.

My favorite so far has been Vivians street tune with the shift points lowered a bit. Drives awesome without the on/off characteristics of the looney.

I've been running Innovatives street tune for a couple of weeks now and like it very much. Have not played with any of the settings yet but running 70 my info center is saying 18.5-19.5 on the mpg's.

Your gonna get different answers, too many variables involved when dealing with MPG.

Same goes with what tune to use as a daily driver, too many variables between trucks and PCM strategies, it also comes down to personal preference and driving habits.

I know trucks react differently to different tunes and I am ok with 13 mpg in stop and traffic. But I just wanted to see if other tunes like looney or a street would be better in those conditions than my srl. But like I said I really like the tune but there was deffinately a loss in mpg from stock, and on this last tank I was taking it really easy on the pedal.

I run innovatives extreme street, great power delivery, and mpg depends on if I can keep my foot out of it.
