Stock Tune or Street/Race Tune in Winter...

Just wondering what you are all suggesting to run in the winter, I have Matt's Street Race Lite tune and it starts just fine and runs like a champ even in >0F temperatures (plugged in). It's usually right around 0 to -10F in the mornings here (below -17C). I have remote start and let my truck warm up for at least ten minutes every morning when its below 0F. The only problem im seeing is about 8-9 mpg and im thinking maybe I don't need all that extra fuel when it's this cold. I'm definitely not tromping around like I do in the summer...

I am running Matts 100hp street right now and love it, I tried SRL but it was too much for the snow covered streets.

I have the street tune. I will use it unless I will be driving no ice, then it will be a tow tune.
