I have hit the 14.1 mpg average in March. The real big difference between this year and last year as far as I can see. This year I bought the DiabloSport InTune for my RAM. I have been running Shell 93 for the last few months as well. I have the tune set to the 91 tune. I have squealed tires, driven kind of not so conservative and have towed a boat (50 miles round trip). Unless they started the summer mix back in Feb-March. I live outside Toledo,Ohio. I am not sure when summer gas gets brought back, so I can not explain if it is here or not. I know this, I hit a mark early in the year, with the 91 tune. I have yet to try the 87, or the MPG Booster tune on the RAM. I will say this, if you are thinking about buying one for your 2009-10 RAM, do it. Well worth the 389 I paid for it. I have already spent less on gas this year, so far almost 120.00 dollars less. IF I can average that savings every 4 months. I have paid for it.
Hummmm...so you started using 93 oct. with the tuner ( more $ cost for 93) and got .1 more mpg. and this paid for the tuner?.

No, I looked back at last year and seen that I never hit the 14 mpg average for a one month period until May. I hit the 14 mpg mark this year in March. I have also spent less money on gas over the same amount of fills.Better MPG= less fills= less $$$. So far I have saved almost 120 bucks. IF I can continue this, I will have paid for the DS InTune. Do you understand what I am saying now?

I am getting annoyed by this issue. I have been running only Shell gas in my 2010 RAM 5.7L Hemi and I have been using 89 octane in it last 2 fill ups and I set the tune to 87 tune. I have been listening for KR and I would hear it from time to time. It was noticeable. So, I reset my RAM to OEM settings and ran it through same type of running and guess what, NO KR. WTH is wrong with this tuner to cause it to do this? I am not wanting to ruin my RAM over 20 hp and tq. This tuner should be able to run with Shell,Sunoco,BP,Mobil,etc gasolines. Something is not right with these tunes to cause KR. If I can adjust something, please let me know. If there is going to be an update to correct this issue, I would like to know as well. Other wise I can not use the tuner. I save on gas by using Shell. They have a program with Kroger store and I can save .10 per gallon for every 100 dollars spent in one month up to 1.00 dollar off per gallon up to 35 gallons. I am kind of tied to them, so the tuner needs to change for me to use it. I have been told that Hemi's are known to knock. Is there any one that has this issue with any kind of gas? I have been writing on intunes forums, so far I am not satisfied with the answers I have been getting. Why should I not be able to use anyones gasoline and still not worry about the tuner making it knock on me.

Im curious if it does this with the other DS tuners. I have been looking at tuners for about a year now and this thread had me sold on the intune until your last post.

I'm finding the problem with the KR and shell gas too. I heard somewhere that shell puts an additive in to reduce knock. Which makes me wonder why they would have to do do this if there wasn't something in the gas that would make it knock. I have a Nissan Murano that calls for 91 octane, and if I put shell 91 in, it will knock when I stomp it too.

Don't you guys watch the TV?..... Shell adds Nitrogen to its fuels (in·ert) (n-ûrt)

2. Sluggish in action or motion; lethargic. See Synonyms at inactive.
3. Chemistry Not readily reactive with other elements; forming few or no chemical compounds.

Well, I am not giving up on it yet. I am going to change the gas I use for a while and see if it does correct the issue. The DS intune is pretty much the best one out thus far. BDog has to be wired into the battery. This is plug in to OBDII and when done unplug and store the unit.
