I think more often then not, people "claim" better mileage with the higher hp tunes. Now there are alot more factors that go into mpgs then just tune and driving style that "you" won't be able to do anything about, but that's what people "claim" in general. I don't know with regard to an individual person's tunes with regard to hp's impact on mpg.

I get the best mileage with the looney tune. The hotter the tune, the better mileage you will get, IF you drive sensibly.

This is the same question I asked Cale. His answer was the way he sets the tunes up they will all get the same mileage under normal driving. I had asked him about a hot tune for the better mileage myself and that is when he explained this to me. And I have ran both his 65 tow agressive and his 120 hot street and they both get the same.

HAND CALCULATED my truck running in 50F air, 60-65ish thru the Ozark mtns for about 100 miles and them on the Interstate for another 160 miles running 70-75ish will get around 19.0-19.2mpg with Cale's 70hp econ, and 18.5ish with is race tunes.
