Has anyone used this tune? If so what kind of mileage can be expected? Also how clean is it? I love black smoke but don't think its necessary on a "economy tune" as long as I can puff some smoke on other tunes thats good enough for me.

I have that tune and it gets 16-18mpg depending on the way you drive it. Actually the best milage tune is the 585 tune, around 20mpg but it's not really that great for everyday driving. The shift points are set for dragging and are way too firm.

Thanks for the reply dinoburner! Im hoping I can achieve a bit better than that with a safe everyday tune.
Well After hearing people say how 20+ mpg is easily achievable with these trucks and the right tune.. what do you guys suggest is the right everyday tune that is safe for the truck for the SCT?

SCT tunes get better fuel economy than Spartan? I'm not seeing anywhere near 18mpg. Unless you are talking hwy only. On the dash it might say 18mpg, but if I calculate it, really only 13-14mpg.
