Question CAI orderd now its time to choose a tuner

Hey guys just got my k&n cai and now i want to get a tuner . Theres so many options out there i see alot of z members run cortex or diablo sport. I'm leaning towards the diablo tuner. I'm looking for gas mileage increase(its a hemi so it is what it is haha) and any power gain would be great. However with 87 octane at 1.05 a liter here its likely i wont run anything higher then that because its just too much money for me at this time so another question I have is will a tuner even be worth my 350 bucks or would i be better off with 3 and half tanks of fuel.
Thanks guys

Well when you put it like that it makes it seem like the tuner is definitely the way to go lol.
3 1/2 tanks of fuel will only last about 3 weeks for me, a tuner will put a smile on your face for as long as you own your truck lol.

I'd say go with the tuner. Your value judgement is flawed for the reason Juice pointed out.

And a tuner can help with mileage. What I've found is that I get better mileage with higher octane than I ever did with an 87 tune and 87 octane.
