is the 87 octance the "fuel economy" mode? Also, do you have larger tires, lift, cai, exhaust??

I have all that is listed in my sig and im getting around 11.9 - 12.2 average . I really need your input in justifiying spending the money on the superchip. THANKS!!

ok so back from nashville. According to the fuel gauge i used less fuel. I was speeding more than usual just to see. I do not think i can take one trip and slap an approval on the product but i am happy that i can change for tire size.

No, 87 octane was not the fuel economy mode, (which i should have used). I just have an exhaust and my tires are 285/70/17 (i think its 32???), i have i think a 2'' lift. i bought this truck as is, its basically stock.
