4 cylinder, my apologies. I've never said V4 in my life, but now that I own my first V8 it's become habit. I am aware there is no V shape haha

many tunes do not modify the normal driving only the wide open throttle part of the tune so the normal driving is not modified, any change i MPG would be through better or easier flow in/out temp changes etc.

I get 29mpg if i drive 65-70, at 75 is 28.5~ and so forth. I have managed 30.4 average over time going 55-60~

dont trust the computer average, do the math yourself per tank on highway trips for more accurate numbers.

+1

I often read people saying a tune helps mpg, BUT, I have never seen conclusive DATA. It's from a person who drives ten miles and looks at their computer and it becomes a fact, or the law. As often as I see people talk about it, not once have I seen any (let alone worthwhile) data, any ABA testing, or any real test/conditions involved.

Its usually more like "yea broseph, i tuned it and got like 3 extra mpg."

Not all people are like that, but I have never seen conclusive or conducive data.

I guess the stock tune Ford put in the car making it run rich versus the balanced AFR from the tune does nothing then. I personally have seen a difference between tunes, between being stock, running the race tune, then the hybrid tune and now the street tune I have noticed a difference in how many miles per tank I am getting. I drive all city miles though which could be why I see a difference.

I have no experience with it, I got 84k miles before I tune her..lol. The consensus is that a tune helps efficiency, but I have a while before I can start testing lol

If you mean me (GT fogs) then I am a 3.7, but if you mean someone else, let us know! I didn't think a GT could go past 30, 31.

Wow. 32 is really amazing. Here is a picture I took today - this was a whole tank of 93 octane, 100% freeway, steady traffic flow 65-70 mph. Not sure that I could do any better unless I drove even slower (not happening!).
