"Low Power" Spartan Tunes

I've read a lot about the 210, 250 and 310 tunes on the Spartan but I am not necissarily looking for those crazy numbers. Has anyone used the "lower" HP tunes such as the 40, 75 or 120 off-road tunes? What kind of fuel mileage gains can I expect running one of these vs the high performance tunes? Is anyone running these?

IMHO, the best result of the Spartan will probably be less fuel in the oil. I'm not looking for extreme power, either. It pulls very well, in stock configuration, with my 14,800 lb fiver behind it.

Everyone I have talked too, including Spartan directly, said to run the 275 tune for the best MPG increase.

Spartan has nothing to do with less fuel in the oil other than the fact Spartan permits optional removal of the DPF, and therefore no DPF regeneration cycles.

I see that you understand my point.
