It dont, but predator will give better mpg, than Hypertech, Cuz hypertech uses part throttle fueling, and realy wont see a difference.

I've been running HT level 3 for about 10k. It's a great tune and I've seen 2-3 mpg improvement.

I just ordered a DS, so I'll be able to post some comparisons in a few weeks.

06' GMC 3500 SLT 4x4 CC DRW, Air Raid intake, 4" MBRP catback, DS Predator 85hp tune, Engine Runup water injection, bilstien shocks, soon to have Qudzilla XZT. I tow 34' HR 5th wheel 14,000 lb GTW. DS throws high EGT's so i'll try XZT to keep EGT's down and MPG up. we'll see? Any info on stacking?

Superchip tuner works fine in my truck...don't use level III , shifts funny and power surges while on cruise.

Level I / Level II work great, especially when towing, have noticed about 1 mpg better mileage.

Would have bought either...just got a screaming deal on the Super
