Bama Tune

I always run the street tune during normal driving and only use the race tune from time to time. Those of you guys that use race tune all the time, how much does it affect gas mileage compared to the street tune? I'm thinking about driving around with the race tune all the time

I honestly only run the street tune in winter so I've never noticed a difference, if you run it you might lose maybe 1mpg

That doesn't sound bad. I guess I'll just try it out for awhile and see how I like it.

Yep! Running 93Race tune for over 3 years now and routinely see the same. I've now switched jobs am I'm running 30 miles one way and with the needle on 75 with 4.10s I'm getting 19-20 highway.

I've always ran the 93 Race tune all the time, year round! I've never ran into an issue and I've always got pretty decent gas mileage. I currently get between 17 & 19 MPG (City)! I would recommend giving the Race tune a shot and see what you think. IMO, the pros and cons are definitely in your favor. You'll pick up some power and torque etc.. but may lose maybe 1-2MPG, if you really can't control your foot. If you drive normal, I don't think you'll see any decreases at all!

Hope this helps!

-Dan
