superchips Question.........

I have a superchips micro (2001 7.3). I just had a question, do you guys think if I changed from performance mode to tow mode mileage would increase? and right now i'm not gonna be towing anything for a while. I still want some performance but I think the tow mode will be enough for me for a while, I was just wondering if it would hurt anything being I'm not towing and having it on that mode with LOTS of city driving and short trips?

From what I remember of the SCMT I had it had 3 levels and the middle one was supposed to be the most economical. I was told on my current chip that the extreme setting would be the most economical but I don't like the way the motor sounds so I run it on tow most of the time. It wouldn’t hurt a thing to run it in tow without towing. Mileage has way more to do with driving habits than tunes or programs.
