Just wondering what if any MPG changes any one is seeing? I bought a Hot tune for my 2016 ram, with 3.55 gears 4x4 that is leveled. I have only had the tune for about a week and half, but have not noticed any mpg changes. I do about 60/40 highway to city driving, and drive moderately (maybe more highway). Before the tune, I got 21.7 and with the tune I'm about the same. maybe 22, but that might be me just trying to drive more conservative to get better mpg. I like the changes to the tune, although its minor. I think it's a much better truck to drive around. I've noticed less turbo lag, and i would say a better driving experience. But again it is a very minor change from stock to tuned. I plan on keeping this truck for many years and putting 200k miles before I turn it over so having the egr turned off is one of the biggest reasons I bought the tune. But I was hoping for a little better throttle response, and I definitely thought I would get better mpg. reading others post about noticeable gains, just makes me wonder what is different. And 30+ mpg seams way off, heck I'd be ecstatic if I got around 25. I'm just wondering if others have a similar experience with their Ecodiesel tunes. thanks

I have had the hot tune for just over a week. I am seeing same results. No significant mpg increase. I drive almost totally on the hwy with large portion being 70-80mph.
I also expected a mileage increase especially since my truck had 103K miles on it and had never had MAP, EGR or MAF cleaned and I did all that when installing the tune. I am happy with the throttle response, the drive-ability is much improved..but I don't understand the lack of mpg increase.
