CHIP!!!

Hey there was a lot of threads on what settings people have on there chips but no thread on what they drive it on, please share. Ive got a chip, exhaust, BHAF, and gauges and drive mine at 75 all the time. Do you guys think i could step up to the 100 all the time and not have my gass milage drop too bad from the 75? I found about a 3 mpg increase on the 75 from stock.

Generally, the higher the power setting the better the mileage as long as you keep your foot out of it.

I run my dad's work truck on the economy tune all of the time, don't know how much power it adds though.

From my experience and research, running on Extreme 9 times out of 10 will actually give better mileage than an economy tune.
