sct economy tune

Looking at the prospect of buying a sct tuner. The ones with the preloaded tunes and the room for a couple custom tunes. Realistically speaking, what kind of better fuel economy can I expect from the economy tune? Not really looking for more power, but some more mpg's have me interested in making the purchase. That being said, maybe my question should be: what's everyone running for tuners and why? Is there one that gets better mpg's right out of the box without a custom tune?

I should mention the only mods to my truck are an egr delete and 4" turbo back exhaust with only a muffler and no cat. tia

get the sct livewire ts comes with three canned tunes and you can store 10 custom tunes. it also acts as a monitor you can observe 9 pid's at one time which is critical for the the 6.0. then get ahold of matt or lars at gearhead or tony wildman for custom tunes. as for the gains in mpg's you probably will see 3-5 at the most
