For those who are spartan tuned.. mpg?

I bought my truck January 19,2012 and put 300 miles on it before pulling the plug on my Spartan tuner and DPF delete pipe. From the day I installed the tuner, I have been running the 165hp DPF off tune. With this tune I was seeing 20.5-22.0mpg hand calculated on the highway @ 70-75mph. The other day I purchased the Warhammer tune from Spartan, after running it for two days I am seeing 21.2-23.0mpg highway hand calculated at 70-75.

Has anyone else gotten better fuel mileage with the higher hp tune?

In my experience, for anyone with a Spartan, if you don't have the Warhammer tune, BUY IT, now!!!

Yeah the spartan runs really good. I am running it on 165 I have the war hammer but I don't run it on it pry should I guess. My mpgs are 17.5 with 3.55 gears 20's stock tires but I run about 80 though.

That's exactly what I saw on the 165 at 80 with 3.55s stock 20s on a CCSB. Aparently the war hammer kicks the mpg up a bit. I'm going to be doing a stretch of 80mph highway running today. I do have a motorcycle in the bed but I don't see that affecting results much

80 mile run on I-80 with a motorcycle in the back resulted in 19.2mpg on the war hammer tune. I'm impressed to say the least

Just got back from a 2000+ mile trip from KS to PA....averaged 70mph...mpg average for the whole trip was right at 20mpg with the warhammer tune. Pryor to that I couldn't do better that 17ish with the H&S or Spartan 165. I didn't think that was bad with 35's and 3.55's.
