Who is getting what mileage with Who tuning it?

I just recently put an SCT X CAL 2 on my truck and now I'm looking for a custom tune. I've noticed most tuners offer and economy tune as well as towing nad performance. I'm just curious what each of these tunes increased peoples mileage. I know there is a lot of variables that account for mileage but I'm just trying to get a ballpark. I have a stock 04 F250 6.0 4x4 super Crew Longbed loaded with leather ETC. I know I'm not going to get 24mpg like the 2wd guys but I wouldnt think 18-19 in the city is out of the question since I'm getting 16 now without any 2 stroke oil and that seemed to help on the stock tune by 1.5-2 MPG. Also even if your using the stock tunes from your out of the box tuner post up your before and after MPG numbers.


Thanks Kelly


Also I did search but couldnt find a specific thread about custom tunes.

Re: Who is getting what mileage with Who tuning it?

on my 99 450 with the 7.3 with a set of swamps 175's, h2e charger, 4in turbo back exhaust, 3in. intake plentums, open air filter, bts tranny, and a 6 position chip with some generic tunes from swamps, and 4.88 gears i was only getting 8mpg, so i called swamps and they put some new tunes that they had been working on on a chip and believe it or not with no power loss the truck almost doubled the fuel milage, it now gets around 14mpg. those guys do some awesome work!!!

14 mpg with 4.88s is impressive Scotty.

Re: Who is getting what mileage with Who tuning it?

19.5-19.8 consistently with mods below on stock tuning...haven't tried to calculate it on the hot settings...I can't keep my foot off of the loud pedal when its on those settings. But FWIW the truck makes 310 RWHP on the stock setting and weighs in at 5420 full of fuel and me in it.
