Default Chipped engine

Has anybody ever chipped there engine in a Ranger to try and get better fuel economy. I was wondering because I was thinking about chipping my Ranger for better fuel economy. But what has me leary about is I work with a guy chipped a newer model F150 and it chewed up his transmission. And do these chips really bring in the fuel economy?

I just want to get better fuel economy with out wrecking my engine and I know chips can wreck an engine if done wrong. I don't care about performance or more horse power i just want the fuel economy. Hows a tuner suppose to help with the fuel economy? I like my Ranger but I am only getting 300 kms to a tank and i don't have a lead foot.

a tuner tunes everything and theyre tuned specifically to your truck, no standard program like a chip

You're truck is BRAND EFFING NEW..... You won't see normal mpg numbers til you hit 5k or even more... it's called a break-in period.
