I'm interested to hear people chime in on this one. I have heard that DJ's economy tune does fairly well.

I have not seen an increase in milage from the econ tune personally. I did however see an increase in my high speed driving with the street tune.

Just tried out the newest economy tune from djs.. and i saw about a 1/2-1mpg increase above the looney.... But the looney is just more fun with all the smoke and power.... The economy tune does get about 4 mpg better than stock though on my truck

Does the economy tune smoke? How much power does it add?

Might be a good tune for me to order with my SCT. I'm not wanting anything to crazy until I get the time and money for head studs.

I'm running the Looney and trying to keep out of it. Like others have said, I can't keep the Eco tune in for very long...
