Good SCT setting?

Im trying to find the best and most reasonable setting that will bump my HP but not ruin my mph to bad. Thanks for the help!

Go with a 91 or 93 race tune. I'm running a 91 race tune on my daily driver and get 24 mph on the highway.

Go with the 91 performance then. The Race tune will have you stomping on the go pedal a lot more then normal which will eat up gas like a mutha.

I don't know why my car is eating gas so fast. Its going just as fast as my truck and my truck was getting around 12 mpg.
i see a lot of people having around 24-30 but i feel like I'm getting no where near that. Any other suggestions?

What do you have? Year and model i.e. 2010 GT

Also what tune do you currently have on it?

I have an 06 GT and right now i don't know what it is set on. But i was also assuming that any setting wouldn't lower my mpg to around 12. Im also looking for both highway and city.

Still lacking a bit of info but just some checks to go over:

- Make sure you're on top of your regular maintenance - obviously that can affect MPG's and efficiency
- Don't feed your GT sh*t (cheap) gasoline, I notice lower MPG's with cheap gasoline
- Simple variables such as tire pressure, weather, etc. can affect your MPG's as well

We need more info on your tune. SCT devices don't "tune" your car, they just load the tune for you.

I didn't see the other questions, but its a manual 4.6L 06 GT, don't know if that helps at all.

Ah, well there you go. As I drive an auto (wish I had a MT 90% of the time!) I'm sure DDTCM can help you out further

Try shifting at 2K. I know its pretty quick but give it a whirl and see how that works. Have fun with it still but try 2K when just daily driving to work and on errands.

Did the tuner come with the car? It's loaded with tunes selected by the owner, so they can put in whatever they want really.

2200-2300 seems to be the perfect shift points for gas mileage for me. Try something like that.
