What tuner/settings you use for best mileage

Since this type of thing is asked over and over lets have a poll. Select what tuner you are using from the selections and just reply with your daily driving settings that net you the best mileage results HAND CALCULATED.(thanks for the reminder) If I have forgotten one let me know and I'll add it.

LLY and LB7 responses welcome, but keep in mind the LB7 gets better mileage than the LLY.

Me.. Edge/*** Level 3, Low boost 1 yields best mileage on my truck. 14.6 city and 16+ highway

Update..I've been using level 4 low boost 1 for well over a year and I actually get better mileage than level 3.
