Favored tow tunes

Just wondering what people like for tow tunes. I'm running matts 8k tow and it performs great just not the best mileage.

What ones do you prefer?

I use his 8K tow for plowing. I do notice a fuel milage loss from the SRL though. Interested to see if anyone else has any they like.

I prefer Vivian's Tow/Agg tune when towing. As far as MPG, I just don't worry about it, I'm towing the 5er to go camping and drink beer so it's not important to me.LOL!!

For towing I use Matts 8K and Unlimited Tow tunes, depending on the weight I'm towing. I'm very happy with both of the tunes.

I have only had Erics tow tune,my mileage seemed to be better even when not towing heavy ,like Lilpooh said really I cant worry to much my rv weighs 13k ,once I hook that thing up the fuel just goes.I like the tune though and it has the turbo braking.

I like Matts 8k tow tune but he will not add the turbo braking on it.
I also have Erics, but the power is not that great.
