Superchips Question?

Hi Guys,
Which tune is going to give me the best MPG. I have Economy, Tow safe and performance. I have it set in Economy mode but is that where my best MPG is going to be?

depends on your mods.... lift or not lift? gears... ect... some people find that putting it on the higher settings will generate better MPG... but the biggest factor is the driver..... your driving habits will ultimately be the deciding factor on your MPG

I forgot to say I'm driving an 05 Harley Davidson with the factory 20" wheels and a 2 1/2" lift. No other mods. In Economy mode I average about 16 mpg. I'm thinking of trying the other settings for better mpg. I'm not complaining about the 16 mpg I was wondering if the other settings would do better. I drive it like an old man.

is that hand calculated or are you going off the lie o meter? best way to figure out which tune is best is the trial and error way... go like a full tank with one tune and hand calculate exactly what you got... also when you fill up fill it up all the way to the point that you see fuel... takes longer but this way you can accurately calculate it.... and after each tank switch to a diff tune.....

Thanks Raul,
I've been using the lie-O-meter. I'll try all three tunes and see which one works the best for my driving style.
