well for tranny schedule would be schedule 1 low(lock tq converter in 4th and 5th) this will keep rpms low but when you need the power it may feel like its lugging. for the tuner they say the best mpg is the high hp tunes because it takes less pedal to get up and going. the trick is though you have to be smart with the pedal. personally, i do better with the mild instead of hot because its less touchy and i can control my self better. the hot HD300 is sooo touchy. the best MPG is having it broke in the garage like me right now lol. its getting great gas mileage lol

Only had my mini maxx for a couple hundred miles but I've already found that on any setting I have gained lots of mpg. I'm running an s&b intake and a dpf deleted 4" exhaust system with the maxx tranny set on 1 and the hd300 tune and I'm seeing around 20 mpg as per the lie o meter on the dash, and that's with me putting my foot into it a couple times a drive hard not to with that 300 hp bump just a button away.

20????? I can't get better than 13.5. And that pushing it as far as I can to squeeze ever last bit I can out of it. I have been running on mild with my tranny at medium and tc lock from 2nd to forth. And low boost fueling at 2. Are you all updated?

But then again my lie-o-meter seems to be dead in when I figure it out on paper. So maybe that's part of it

I was getting 12/13 before all the work. I haven't figured it out on paper yet but from what hear the dash usually guesses low so I'm probably closer to 22 or so. I have herd lots of guys have way different results from the mods. Ya I'm updated as of this past Saturday.

i havent been able to get better than about 13 or so. i got 14.1 once and thats record high. my dash says 13.3, usually dead on but i do get into the 11's sometimes. most say the lie-o-meter is high not low. the only way to tell mpg is hand calculated.

Ya that's about what I'm getting. Just did the math and that's only like 14 mpg.... Little dash thingy is wayyyyy out to lunch haha. Before was like 9 mpg, so still a big improvement. Not sure why my head/dash monitor were agreeing with 20 mpg. Minor blonde moment.
