Does the SCT livewire fuel economy tune really improve MPG?

was curious if the economy setting on the livewire actually helped improve fuel mileage, also is there a signficant difference in the perfomance tune and no tune at all? I currently have a triple dog and when you put it on performance there isnt much difference if any it seems like.

The fuel economy tune i have no clue but have heard from everywhere that normally ur best fuel mileage will come from ur highest hp setting.. u just have to keep ur foot of the skinny pedal. And theres night and day diference in the performance setting and stock. And a custom tune is "IMO" way underpriced for the difference it makes.. around 50-80$ for a custom tune.

"Canned" tunes are like scoring with your high school sweetheart in the back seat of your dad's Buick on prom night, fun, but eh, could have been better. Custom tunes are like nailing the hot, jilted, sex starved neighbor who wants 'get even' sex. Yeah, they're that cool!

Fuel economy, pfft, who cares about that when you're in a 7000lb truck on 35s!?!
