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/Att 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.

edge/attitude 3/3 My best MPG is 18.9, I guess I need to stay off the throttle to get better.

I can't vote since I use a stack of Pred on 40 and Edge on 3/5 or 5/5. 3/5 will help my mileage since I just can't burn as much fuel as I can on 5/5.

(LLY) Predator 40 HP - 16mpg mixed 18.5 all highway with a light foot.


P.S. Remember -- If you're posting MPG's it has to be hand calculated because the DIC is off when running a program.

Any idea of the difference in MPG using the 40 or 65 setting on a Predator?

Besides the obvious lead foot that the higher HP setting may cause... ;)

I normally use the 40 setting.

Lately more like gallons per mile....I dont know what it is.....I never gave a rats ass about fuel mileage. Now driving 150 miles round trip 4 times a week, I care. Normal fillup is 20-21 gallons. Trip odo reset at every fillup usually at 350 miles to tank....Usually. Hand calculated comes out to 17 mpg and some change. I drove down to North Carolina a month ago with a mattress in the bed with the tail gate down and made it 500 miles and then squeezed in 22 gallons. My trip to work is 98% highway with cruise set at 73. DOES THE TAILGATE MAKE THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE??????
