    Who is running what tunes? I am for sure getting an economy tune because I put a lot of miles on my truck, but also looking at street and performance for a daily driver.. Will the performance or even race tunes kill my mileage? Can you pull a bass boat on a street or performance tune?

    Shouldn't hurt your gas mileage, but the tendency to get into boost will.

    In my experience with other platforms that were not trucks, I was always told that a good tune will warrant you the best mpg possible its more throttle control than it is the tune

    For steady state cruising in top gear, it'll matter less whether youre running a performance or economy tune. Where the economy tune really comes out ahead is in stop and go traffic.

    If you are getting custom MPT tunes, IMO why bother with an economy tune unless you don't want to have fun ;) Towing and Performance seems to be where it's at.
