Calling all H&S/Kem tune users

I have read that the kem tunes produce the best mileage. I have also read that some say the kem tunes are not worth the money, where others love them. I am getting 400 - 425 miles per tank, mostly hwy, I want more for my vacation trips this summer. I was going to buy a spartan, but I think I changed my mind for now. I hate to ask this fellas but give me your thoughts if you have ran both. I hear that Mike at KEM knows his $hit.

I have KEM tunes and they are great, excellent shifting, and little smoke. I talked to Mike last year and he said they were looking at shift on the fly tunes, this will be great if they do. I just hope more people are requesting this. I may pull a full load one day and the next nothing, this is where it will benefit us if KEM's tunes were shift on the fly.

Well I figured I would go ahead and try it. Might try some innovative tunes on an sct as well. I'm looking for the best mileage tune possible.
