Hypertech Max Energy question

2001 supercrew 7.3 all stock except just installed Hypertech Max Energy and installed on stage 1. After two tanks appears that mileage is somewhere 3-4 mpg less than stock. Normal driving, no attempted burnouts, etc. Going to try stage 2. My main objective was better fuel mileage. I guess what I'm asking is for anyone with similar experience with Hprtech mx enrgy and what settings worked best for them as far as mileage.

Might want to try a 4" exhaust. Also you might want to get a AFE stage II intake. You are feeding it fuel but NO air and it has no place to exhaust. Do this and you will notice a huge difference.

Well the Max Energy is history. On stage 1 dropped 2-3 mpg; on stage 2 dropped about 3-4 mpg. This is with no fast starts and kept speed under 70 mph. This was with 70% hwy and 30% city. As eschaner says i probably needed bigger exhaust and more air. Not ready to spend that kind of $$ yet. Looking at the investment/return ratio for all of that it would take too long for payout in my opin. Good thing Max has a 30 day $$back guarantee. I went back up to around 19 hwy and 15 city for mpg at stock. may try another later but can't fit in time for mods right now. this is a great forum and thanks to all for the info.

Not trying to be doom and gloom here, but, like previously stated, it's going to be hard to get what your looking for with stock intake and exhaust. Not impossible, just hard.

Dont ever chip a truck expecting to get an increase in milage. Do it for the power, do it for the improved shifting, anything but for MPG. If you get some then so be it, but anyone chipping for Milage 90% will be dissapointed.
