Quick tricks economy only tune?

Im running the sct canned performance tune right now and im done wasting fuel playing around with the truck, and now i want a good economy tune. The "economy only" tune from quick tricks says it has all the parameters of the looney tune without the performance parameters, and lists decent mpg gains. Im looking for a good tune that gets me the best fuel mileage gains, without all the performance. So this sounds like a good tune for me. Any body running the economy only tune?

any performance tune will give you descent mileage as long as you keep your foot out of it

I have all of Vivian's tunes and have milage tested them all, I get the best DD milage from the looney, but.. like others have said you have to keep your foot out which is hard to do.

Even Vivian will tell you the Looney will give you the best mileage as long as you don't get in the throttle all the time. Run the Looney and practice some self control of your right foot.
