Tunes

I am running Looney Tunes on my 05 Excursion. It drives nice and is fast! I mostly got it for MPGs. I know the higher HP tunes yield better MPGs if you keep your foot out of it. Well crushing 65-70 MPH for longs distance with this tune is getting a lil bit worst MPG than stock. I was averaging 18s on stock but and now getting 15-16s with the Looney tune.

(I have recently changed fuel and oil filters. Also run T6 and Rev x)

I do not have studs. What are the other tunes I should try for better MPGs? I have read a couple reviews about the Looney Fuel tune.

Good luck with mpg, there is no secret the best way to save mpg. Air up tires; the air in the tire makes a huge difference, go easy on the skinny pedal (haha!!), and the health of your rig.
I have personally found my rig gets 21mpg if I baby it but I love the skinny pedal too much! The ficm tune bumped my mpg the most next would be the ww2. Looney tune alone did not help my mpg but everybody's setup is different.
