Brandon you need to get one. Im using mine on 87 tune so not even the gas saver and i saw a huge increase. Even with my 37" tires i can go about 330 miles on a tank and im about half and half as well. And with ny new gears i seem to be getting even better mileage. But im glad the original poster likes it on their truck! Congrats!

I set the tuner to 91 octane and put 93 in then drove my reg trip to nashville. Just to mention these are rough estimates cause im eye balling. It used about the same amount of gas as normal trip but i did notice my shifts were alot smoother and seems to be shifting in lower rpms. All in all im satisfied, especially if this helps with future mods.

you are my savior this is the kind of information I was waiting to hear. I will be purchasing one very very soon!
I just got back from a trip and got 12.9 average with 300 miles to a tank. Sooooo, with the superchips I should only get ever better.

Thanks Volcom.

PS Please post some pics of your truck! I think we are twins haha
