Most people get something like 60 tow, 80 econo, and 120 fun

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

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.

I'm not a jerk, I just tell it like it is.

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!
