We actually don't offer an "economy" tune. People would expect better mileage and unfortunately that is rarely the case (saving the internet tongue lashing). Better economy is always a bonus, but not the norm. We do offer a "daily driver" calibration that maximizes the driveability for normal day-to-day driving though and it should do at least as well as stock......mileage-wise.

These are my PHP tunes:
Stock, 65 Tow, 80 DD, 100 Performance, 120 Race, High idle. My truck stays in the 100 performance tune 99% of the time because it gets better fuel mileage than the DD tune. The 120 tune is a lot of fun also, I enjoy using it at the track!
