usually the higher HP settings like 75 or 80 are best for fuel economy, if you can keep your foot out of the pedal

In my 97 i have found that the 50 hp is the best for economy. Buddy of mine is a dealer and said he gets the best econ. on higher settings, but its hard to keep your foot out of the throttle then. Good Luck

How much better mpg should I expect? I'm also wondering are the econ settings on the TW and DP chips much better?

What setting would be good for towing?

Also I know alot of people on here like DP and TW chips, but I want to how people, who have a TS chip, feel about it.

thanks

Ive had the TS chip since late 2005. I love it. I usually run around in the 50hp setting or stock. Yet I have the 75 and 100 settings as well. Like everyone said gotta learn to keep the foot out of the throttle.

I loved my TS chip, it had stock, high idle, 50 tow, 80 econo, 100 race, 140+ extreme. I now have custom tunes on it from Swamps to run my single shot injectors. I would like to try TW out to see if he is better but havenít gotten around to calling him yet. What ever you do you have to have gauges first!
