Do you notice a significant drop in mileage running Hot instead of say Mild?

I run hot for daily driving but drive like a grandpa to get the best fuel mileage so tranny strain isn't an issue. I tow on no power or mild setting. I have actually only stomped it once in hot with the hd300 tune and that was because there was an individual in a lightning who needed to be dealt with. Dreams of exploded trannys and blown head gaskets keep me light footed.

The first 2 months I had my truck tuned, I ran it on Wild, after my road trip to Texas, I bumped it up to Hot. I honestly notice 0 MPG difference from Wild to Hot.

I'm about 80% sure there is no difference at all between any of the power settings when you're not at or near full throttle. You can watch the timing on the minimaxx and cruising along the freeway there is no difference between any of the settings. If it doesn't change the timing at a steady 25% load, what else could change between different tunes? Maybe the ICP? I don't think I checked that. It probably stays the same too I'd guess.
