Anyone have worse mpg with Looney fuel?

Just uploaded the tune last week, but I'm getting about 3 mpg less on the highway than stock and I believe mileage in town is about the same as stock. Anyone experience this?

I believe you have non stock hardware. I'm looking to see what stock trucks with just exhaust are getting with that particular tune

Your correct but I have bigger injectors which yes can add to the mileage but for the most part people that I have talked to that run the same tune as me are getting pretty high fuel mileage.

I have only had the Looney Fuel loaded in my truck for 5 days. I dont have enough data to say yes or no. I can report back after I get a couple good days of driving in.

I will have my Looney Fuel (as well as Looney) in a couple days. Ordered my Livewire TS from her and once it comes in, I will run quite a few tanks on both tunes to compare. Oh and I am fully stock except for a 5in straight piped, which didn't really help my mileage at all.
