New tunes? Best for mpg

I have the looney tune right now and I was looking to get one more tune to compare and just to try something new...

I am looking for a tune with good power and also good mpg... I Haven't blown my heads or anything so I really don't wanna go with a super panty dropper right now

Any advice or any reviews would be helpful

Thanks

Ya I was thinking of getting that but I doubt it would help much and I know looney is good but I didn't know if anyone had a tune they liked better than it for power plus fuel economy

I've been trying to decide what gears to run in mine. They're stock 3.73's right now but I was thinking about 4.10's. what are you running on the interstate speed and rpm?

I just loaded the looney wild and I already like it better then looney, the shifting is awesome, firm, quick, but not jerky. no mpg reading yet
