TS 6 Pos Switch setting

I have the canned tunes with my 6 pos switch and use the "50hp" setting. Which one do you guys use for daily driving? There wasn't much of a description for the tunes other than the HP setting. I use the 50hp setting daily and am pretty happy with it, but I've seen some threads where people use the lowest setting for towing and the next one up for DD.
My settings are 50, 75, 100 and 140.

75 or 100 would be good settings to drive around in.
do a test and run a full tank on each and compare your mileage.

I'll try that on my trip to Az this weekend, 50 there and 75 back. With my new trans and chip, my mileage - using the dummy gauge up top - has already jumped to 20 on the highway. Not corrected because of the 35's but at least I know it got better.

Typically the higher settings yield higher MPG results assuming you can keep your foot out of it. Higher ICP and timing...

That's awesome to know. I will try the 75hp setting and see what happens. The 50hp setting really woke the truck up. The new trans helped quite a bit too. I've been watching the EGT and boost, it's nothing crazy on 50 but haven't played with the 75 yet.
