Bought the Gt Platinum Gas Tuner for my 99' Silverado that's lifted 12 inches on 40/15.50 Mud Grapplers and it turns them like their stock, the power difference is truly remarkable along with the smoothness between shifts. Absolutely love the tuner and would recommend to anyone looking for a tuner for their vehicle!!!

How much will the chip improve my fuel milage Fueligibility economy
View Staff Answer
Typical gains can be anywhere from 1 - 4 MPGs. Fuel economy increases can vary between your choices in products, but it really depends on your driving habits and the conditions of your vehicle to see the best gains in MPG. Checking your air filter regularly for optimum flow, making sure tires are at the manufacturers recommended pressure, keeping your bed empty to reduce weight, avoiding wide open throttle starts from a stop, breaking early as you come to a stop, and achieving a more complete burn on your fuel are some steps to help fuel economy. Achieving a more complete burn is something you’ll accomplish with the addition of a programmer, exhaust and intake regardless of the manufactures you choose.
