Superchip 1805 mileage drop?

I was getting 15.5-15.7 mpg hand calculated all stock. I bought a Superchips 1805 and run it on the Economy XS setting and my mileage dropped to 15.1. What gives? I thought you were suposed to get better mpg with a programer. Any input is appreciated. Thanks guys

I run the Edge on level 5 (extreme) and get 19+mph as opposed to level 1 (economy) where i get 15 or less. Crank it it up and keep your foot out of it at least half the time and you should see an improvement.

It should be safe as long as you stay away from hard shifts at WOT. I've been driving this way for 3 years on my 02 that now has 125k on the original stock trans. I have a 34ft 5th wheel camp trailer I tow quite frequently. For towing I usually tune it down.
