Mini Maxx what power level?

Ok, did a search, couldn't find what I was looking for. I made my subject line pretty specific, so it may help more folks.

I recently added a Mini Maxx, 5" down pipe back straight pipe, and S&B intake. I was averaging around 18.2 mpg based on the instrument reading city/highway combined. After the install I went down to 17.7 probably due to some simple power testing. I pulled the clear cover off the intake and noticed the mpg going back up slowly, over a 3 day period it's now back up to 18.1. Not sure what the peak is going to be.

I have the mini max power level set at mild. What is everyone else's power level set at and why do you use that setting?

Thanks

Jim.

I hear a lot of people mainly having it set to HOT, and staying off the gas with actually give you better mpg than the mild tune.

I just got my EGR blocker plates, so I will be able to monitor via Pyro1 by this weekend. I'm a pretty reserved driver though, always trying to best my MPGs. I do love that turbo swooshing sound though

Question: does it matter which sensor I pull off my DPF to use with the H&S plate?

any sensor from the DPF will work. Just dont use the one from the EGR pipe.

I got more tricks than just that. Sometimes I'll order a few items and when it shows up, I pull out the smallest item for show.
