I have an airaid cold air intake. Michelin defender tires, 2 years old and still amazing tread, flowmaster 40 catback 2 1/2 exhaust and resonator delete. Have 2.73 gears. I have the 87 bama tune. Haven't played with any of the other tunes, but I may try the 89 a few tanks. If that's about the same, I'll switch all my tunes to 93 and go from there.
I drive strictly at 65 mph and free pedal it. Let's say you're going up a hill, try and get the car to go up the hill with the most speed and in it's highest gear. Naturally, you'll lose speed in 6th, and you drive like this up the hill until you hit a low speed and absolutely must downshift. Once you've reached the top of the hill, and ecomodders nightmare, you coast Down in neutral as to put no wear on the gear box.
My calculations are based upon computer *boo *boo! But I reset it every tank and every 2 days. I trust it to an extent. Hence why it's there. Before the tunes I could go almost 12 days without refueling. Now.... A mere 5 days. That's my best way to tell.
