Best MPGs???

I have a 06 6.0L. I have the Big Boss Bundle from Banks (I don't need any comments about how I should have went with a different brand). I also have a Powermax turbo. My question is, the higher the tune (1-6) the better the MPGs?? I have been running on 4 (about 75 hp tune). I have also read how other run hotter tunes for better MPGs. Just looking to see if there is general clarification or if it depends on the product. Thanks!

im gonna say it depends alot on how you drive. are you the type of guy that keeps up with traffic when taking off from red? or do you go your own pace. if you keep up more HP will help get it to speed easier/less fuel do u just do ur own thing city driving i use my higher horse tune usually to move around in traffic with ease and gets about same as my economy tune on highway i use economy no need for extra fuel at cruise speed

I've got a banks 6 gun and I always leave it on speed loader setting. The 6.0 seems to love to give the mpg with the more fuel used in it. I also just added the 58v FICM and got an added 2.5 average mpg. I'm getting 18mpg mixed driving and 21.3 average highway. Give the motor that fuel!
