I'm having the same thing happen. I was previously running spartan tuning and with the spartan 250 or KEM 310 my Lie-o-meter was WAY off usually reading 20mpg when im getting 13. Now I run the blackmaxx with the new Hotdam 300 tune and it actually made it almost close to actual MPG. my lie-o-meter now seems to read within 1mpg so far according to my last fill up. Read around 14ish and I got 13.8 calculated

We are on our trip to see the grand kids. 1400 miles. Have driven 1000 of them. Running the xrt pro with the mild tunes set on the mild setting. Plenty of power and great mileage. The lie-o-meter is within 1 mpg but I did adjust for actual tire height. Now in the first 400 miles it was half city type and half highway in cruise at 70 - 75 and we got 16 mpg. all highway after that and again in cruise running 70 - 75 and we are getting a hand calculated 19.18 mpg. Lovin it so far and will post more as we go along
