"Chips" what kind of MPG changes have you seen???

I'm considering "Chipping" my truck, and wondered what type of fuel economy changes I might expect. I'm currently running about 1500miles per month at a cost of around $.40 per mile, and wondered if it would benefit me to add a chip.

I can get an Edge Juice with attitude installed for around $750-800 last time I checked a couple months ago.

With my adrenaline I experienced about 2 mpg gain IIRC. On the highway I can get between 18-21 going around 70-72mph. Slower is better I'm sure, but I've never checked. City I get between 15-16.

After installing the RV275s and the XZT+, I am seeing 1.5 - 2 mpg better than before on average. Thats if I am nice to the throttle.

Towed about 5k around for the whole last tank I burned. For the most part had the XZT+ set on the timing+fuel setting and was playing. Got 18.2mpg hand calculated. Kept speeds around 60 for the whole tank.

When I was running rv 275s and an edge comp I saw about a 2 mpg increase.

20-21 mpg with edge juice/att Stage 3 setting.. Up from 17mpg stock

But, to be fair, I do watch the boost numbers more closly since fuel is as high as vodka.
