My PHP chip gives great power and still really good mileage if I drive it right.

I would get gauges to make everything safe, but I'd go with Tony Wildman, Beans, Swamps, Gearhead, Innovative, PHP, or BTS. They all use the TS style 6pos chip

I have DP tunes and love it. I have only had the chip installed for about a week, but it is much more drivable! I was running a Superchips tuner, and can feel a significant difference. I am sure any of the tunes listed above are good tunes, just see who you feel treats you right as a customer, and see what product looks best for you.

Did you keep track of mileage before PHP? Your fuelly numbers look impressive.

I'd recommend the PHP Phoenix chip. 6 positions (I got whisper, 40 tow, 80 tow, 65DD, 80 performance, and 120 race) and I couldn't be happier. And for $300, you can't beat the price.

Before the PHP, the best I ever got was about 19.5 MPG on the highway. The best with it was like 22.1 or something. That was 100% highway.

Around town, it obviously is lower and me only driving 4 miles to and from work a day probably doesn't help.

well i know i will get bashed for this

i run a super chip in both of my trucks my 6.0 obviously get way more power out of it then my 7.3. but u still get good power and good MPG also has a setting for high performance or tow-haul for heavy heavy hauling.
