I would run the higher octane.....buuuut its 50 more a freaking gallon. Like $3.50 for 91 and $2.99 for 87....I'll just stick with 87 haha and the 87 octane tune in the gas mileage mode did you notice any gains in mpg?? And the main reason I wanted to sell it was to cover the cost of getting all my fluids flushed: transmission, rear and front diff, and transfer case. I just didn't want to hurt any gears. But I just took some money out of savings to pay for flushing the fluids.

i noticed increased power and mpgs....but i also have bigger tires....
with my bigger tires, i averaged about 13mpgs in town, with my tuner, i get about 15mpgs.
On the highway, with the tires and no tune i get about 15mpgs...and with the tune i get about 17mpgs....almost what the stock mpgs were.

No i dont have a "gas mileage tune"...i have just 1 custom tune made just for my truck and my driving habits.
My custome tune is a bit of a mixture of a power-performance/gas mileage.

OK guys so I have been telling my fiance we can not get a puppy because we're not ready for it... well its her birthday and I picked this little guy up 4 hours ago. His names bear he is 11 wks old he's a black lab husky mix. She doesn't know I got him and is off work in 15 minutes so she'll be home in 30. She's going to FREAK.

Lol. Married life is nerve racking....the number one thing we fight over is money.
Next its what to do with our spare time, go to her parents or mine, etc.
Women change their minds alot!!
They want you to do tons of stuff for them, but when you ask for them to do one small thing, its a drama event.

I never pay attention to what my gf wants to do until it's actually time....don't have to deal with listening to her change her mind over and over
