380 miles today towing a trailer loaded with hunting gear. 16x8 trailer, lifted golf cart, 2 55gal feeders, 3 ladder stands, and a bed full of gear. Normally this trip nets 8.2MPGS AND I have to fill up when I get there...today with tune 10.7MPGs. I started without tow haul on and was getting 9.8 with my tranny temp dancing around 175. I dropped into tow haul and tranny temp dropped to 155 in 3-5 min and at the end of the trip i was 10.7 mpg. Everyday that goes by I am more and more impressed with hemifever tune! Had about 500 pounds more on my way back as I brought back a bunch of gear for maintenance.

Any feedback on a torque converter? Will it help that much? Will it impact towing?
