River City Diesel Max Mileage Tune, worth the money?

I'm getting a River City Diesel Max Mileage Tune to go with the SCT Livewire Tuner, is it worth the money? The tune will be $175. Will I be see my mpg go up at all and if so how much will I gain in mpg?

Years ago I paid $250.00 for the Spartan 250 tune, seems cheap for a tune, go buy it you only live once!

That is a little steep for one tune these days.

That's not bad considering people are paying $250 for the KEM 345 tune.
