Best MPG tune in detail ( Get in here )

I understand this is like beating a dead horse but there is no thread that really has good info. Since this question is asked over and over I think we need a sticky on this.

Basically tell us what kind of cab and bed you have, year and mods on the truck and what tune/tunes you run and your avg mpg is.

This was everyone can just come into this thread and see what everyone is getting with there truck and tunes. Let us know how you like the tunes good and bad ect.

Re: Best MPG tune in detail ( Get in here )

Truck is in the signature; right now in town 14.5-14.7 Hwy 16 summer blend of fuel 17 Hwy 16 on town. I'm running MPT's Bazooka, I tried quicktricks Looney Fuel (which I tried when we went to winter blend) my mileage went down. I will give it another try when summer blend comes back.
I know that if you want to play you have to pay but I like the challenge of squeezing out mileage out of every last drop of diesel.

All I know is I'm glad my horse is still alive and no one is beating it.

Looney Fuel

Just did a 135 jaunt on relatively flat highway, 1900 rpm @ about 68 mph. I netted 17.5 mpg and after talking with Vivian this morning, she sent me another file, FREE. What great service! Thanks Vivian. Now she warned me that it takes sometimes quite a while for the file to learn the truck and even though my VXBC9N2 strat is a good performing strat, it is about the worst for economy.

Too many variables involved to just say its the tune getting bad/good MPG.

I've got my stick ready, heading to the dog food cannery!
