Default Installed the predator and now im getting 12mpg???

I installed the 93 tune and adjusted the tire size to 33.5 (tire size 325/60 20) I took the mds off and increase the throtle sensitivity to 20%. According to the evic system i was getting 13mpg and today I drove around for about 45 min and its saying im getting 12mpg. Im not sure if I should trust the evic system or not. Anyone getting this type of mpg? I was looking for power increases when I programmed the truck not too worried on mpg but at 12mpg and with the price of gas, its got my attension..

That's interesting. I saw an increase in MPG with the 91 tune.

Did you change any other parameters?

Not sure but you should measure your tires again. 325/60/20 usually are over 35" not 33.5"
