Edge evolution, more mpg's???

So I got my evolution programmer today and I thought it had an Eco mode on it but I was wrong. So my question is, will I get better gas mileage in tow mode over stock or should I leave it on stock for better mpg's?

Yes the 15000, when it's in tow mode it sucks fuel. Haven't been able to try race mode yet. Also did you gain any mpg's in mode 2?

Why is there such an influx in these canned tunes threads? Those edges beat up auto trannies, they eat fuel, have crazy timing, lower power output, and higher egt's than if you were to have spend LESS money on custom tunes.

I had it on my old 5 speed, and I gained 1-2 mpg. I got it for $100 so I couldn't complain. It is what it is.

Ran mine for 2 years on a 5 speed, dogged the **** out of it. Sold it, and it still kickin.

Hey like I said, it is what it is. Let the bandwagon continue, I'm not glorifying edge at all.
