Best Chip for 08 350 diesel

Hey everyone,

I've had my 350 for almost 2 years now and I've been running the superchips 1855. I get about 18L/100km in the city and 14-16L/100km on the highway empty

I've heard from many others that it's possible to get 7L/100km (I'm assuming this is highway but not sure) using an edge chip.

Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on what chip is the best for fuel economy. I am looking to get out of the superchips if I can get better economy!

Thanks for the help!

Ryan, take a look at our website or give us a call if you have any questions.

Our tuners come equipped with DPF-on and DPF-off tuning, along with EGR-delete tuning free of charge since our latest update, in case you decide to delete the EGR components later. Likewise, Suncoast transmission tuning will be added to our updates very soon, also free.

Typically you'll find that higher HP tuning (with pretty much any brand of tuner) will yield the best fuel economy. Lots of users have great success with our 275HP and 300HP tuning.

Also with the latest update to our tuning files, the 275 tune has been added to all level 1 licensed tuners at no additional charge.
