I currently have an Edge evolution programmer on the "extreme" tune or whatever it calls it....and my odometer shows 14.6 mpg....but the thing is, it shows 14.6 when I'm cruising through town...and 14.6 when I'm going down i40....is it normal that they would stay the same?

Also, my x3 with IDP tunes should be here pretty soon. What kind of mileage should I expect with them? Assuming that I leave the lead foot at home.

The only mods I have other than the evo are an intake filter, and straight pipe exhaust.

the gauge on the dash on mine saysanywhere between 12-13mpg running around town. Stock 05 6.0 except for the airaide intake and 35" tires, aso runing Superchips microtuner on performance. I do have some what of a heavy foot, but was expecing better. Sound right?

Yup, sounds about right. Big tires+ generic tunes+ heavy foot= 12-13 mpg.
I get about 14-15 with my foot in it. 17ish on the hwy.
