Look into a Diablo Trinity. You will gain power but I doubt you will gain mileage.

You will get maybe 1 more mpg out of a tuner, as long as you aren't flooring it everywhere. Maybe more if you use the MPG tune

I hope you're not referring to the $50 chip that gains 60 hp and 20 mpg...

Those chips are just a resistor. Buy a real tuner.
