i seem to get the best mileage from the performance tune on the SCT but if you really want improvements on gas mileages get some custom tunes

the high idle mod lets the truck idle at 1200 rpm while your in park or neutral with the parking brake applied. you can use it if your jumping another car or if your gonna leave your truck idling for a while. its easy to do and id have to find the write up on it but ill post it when i find it.

Lol I would recomend you buy a ford focus lol

In all seriousness I find that I get my best miles per gallon on my race tunes. they seem to give me 1-2 mpgs better than my other tunes. I dunno my truck may be a lil different than the rest of the other trucks though.
