Best Advice for a tuner???

I have a F350 with the 6.4... Its is my work truck and I drive it daily on the highway and do some towing with it.... Right now i get about 10mpg... What is the best tuner to buy that will give a bit more power, better mpg, but not fry the motor or tranny????????
Thanks for the help...

Spartan tuning! You get many different tunes to choose from out of the box and the best tuner/monitor on the market. We have also been at it a lot longer than the rest!

I would go with H&S. Can change tunes on the fly and less of a hassle to install the delete pipe. I have had mine for about 10,000 miles and no problems at all.

I have a edge with attitude on mine which is my daily driver for work and I pull my 20ft boat with it. The only problem I have had is my particulate filter has clogged which got covered under warranty (30,000mi). All I am using is the chip nothing else. I am getting around 14mph 7/8 of the time. I have gotten 20 a few times when I jumped on the freeway right after a fill up and running 65mph. with no load on the truck. With my boat I get 10mph but I drive like a crazzzy person.

yeah i would go with h&s or spartan,,,, h&s is nice for shift on the fly and would be nice for a business type situation if someone else is barrowing your truck or one day u wanna go have some fun.. I have heard spartan tuning is awesome too just in my opinion spartan is a little more custom and the only downside to that is it takes more time to retune, correct me if im wrong?,

And with H&S, future tunes from the company are FREE to download off their site.
