gas econ improved w torque mgmt "off"?

I have a 2007.5 Classic with LQ4. I installed the Diablo Predator first thing, and then only recently turned off the torque management. Other than drag launches , for the day-to-day driving, seems like the tank is taking longer between fill-ups. I haven't clocked the mileage yet, and I will once we get back to work after the Holidays.
Anybody else?

$5 gas?

7.5 mpg back and forth to work. One or two squirts to pass the 99% jerks, but those squirts don't seem to factor so much now.
I've switched to mid-grade gas, as the LQ4 has the lower compression ratio than the LQ9(? because I'm too tired to look it up right now).
Driving 350 miles on 2/15 and return, with no passenger and ~175 lbs. bang toys, so 'll report back.
Note, I have 4.10 axles and now 32" dia. tires

I dont see how torque management could effect gas mileage.
