I had a similar question. most will suggest you to get a performance turner instead and it might mildly increase the fuel economy, but not enough to really pay off the expense of the turner. I would just invest money elsewhere but thats just my opinion

I have a tuner from jet that brought my O-60 time down and now the truck just seems to shift. Better. It helped my fuel economy a little but these are trucks lol mpg not their strong suit. I think its a good way to go if you've done some other performance add one as well

I forgot to mention that Turner have a greater impact on autos vs manuals since you can adjust the shift points as well.

When you post up a question it makes it really simple for those answering your question if we have some information about your ride. The simplest thing is to create a signature and list the specs of your truck. Year, trim, drivetrain, engine, current mods plus anything else you would like to add. This way we are not asking for more information or blindly answering your questions. To create a signature click on User CP in the upper left and on that page, about the 10th option down on the left is the Edit Signature, go there fill out your info and save. Or click here http://www.fordrangerforum.com/profi...=editsignature

Thanks!

I've seen other types of cars with a chip that has a switch where you can choose a fuel economy mode, or a performance mode but I really don't have any details on the brand and whatnot
