People are seeing 1-3 mpg increases while towing after the deletes and tuner.

I dunno, the 3-4 mpg gain i saw towing(i saw the same 3-4 mpg gain unloaded) nets me a savings of almost $0.14 per mile i drive. At that rate, i only need to drive 14,000 miles to pay off my tuner and exhaust.
I went from 7-8 towing with my 37's to 11.8 my last trip.
