Here is how I drive so you guys could give me an estimate lol
I put 37 miles on the car daily, thats back and forth from my job, I both way is in stop and go traffic.
I never NEVER race my car at all, I always drive normal and I accelerate normal.
I ALWAYS use 93 Octane Gas from either chevron or BP.
Any recommendation guys?
Depends where you get your tune from. If you get it from Bama like I did mine they have 3 general types of tune: Street (least aggressive setup, overall a mild tune), Performance (more aggressive, a bit more power gain) and Race ( Most aggressive and biggest power gain but you will see some MPG loss at this point).
For your type of driving a 93 Street tune would suit you just fine. I don't think you'll GAIN MPG as you'd be changing your timing and shifting (if you have an automatic trans) but with such a mild tune you shouldn't see much loss either.
I run the Race tune and I lost ~4 mpg. Gained 1 from a CAI and surprisingly 3 from Headers, X pipe and catback. So overall I'm down ~1 mpg on average.
