Would like to Boost MPG sans Gauges/which tuner?

I would just like to boost my mpg and have an option to tow with without having to add several gauges in the process. Would like some suggestions/options to go with. I'm more than happy to go with SCT as long as I can do it sans gauges.

if you have an EBPV, disconnect it.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

You can do it without gauges although it is not recommended. You would have to stick with very tame tunes.

SInce you mentioned towing, the two best gauges to get are EGTs (always a smart one) and a Trans Temp. Especially if towing. The factory one is basicly an idiot light, and you would want to keep an eye on those two specificly.
