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.

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