    Does anyone have any pre- vs. post-tune fuel economy stats yet?

    Is @5startuning ever going to respond? Personally, I don't think it bodes well when the same questions are being asked and there has been zero response. I understand a company gets busy, however, if you have the time to make a thread to sell your product, you ought to have the time to respond to questions that are posted therein.

    Fair assessment Hack_Actual. Had a heavy travel schedule lately and between it and developing new products have not paid all threads the attention deserved. We will be happy to respond to any and all questions.

    If using an SCT device and the swpn was submitted prior to shipment the device will come preloaded. When flashing it will save the stock file into the interal memory.

    If using an HP device, we would have to receive a stock read prior to shipment in order to write the custom tunes. If received prior to shipment the tuner will come preloaded and ready to install the custom tune files.

    From there, you can flash with any tune you would like as long as the minimum octane for the tune is in the tank.

    "Economy testing completed this morning
    87 daily tow 37.2 miles driven, lieometer shows 23.9 actual pump shows 21.74 used 1.711 gallons outside temps 55F
    stock 37.2 miles driven lieometer shows 23.9 actual pump shows 19.61 used 1.897 gallons outside temps 57F
    slight north bound head wind on both runs
    flashed at gas station each tune so PCM can relearn partial loop
    steady state 70 mph cruise on interstate 95 part of loop 1
    filled up at same pump number 7"

    info from our own tune adjustment form for tune development

    Hi Peter,

    So here is some of the current, solid info we have from a short economy loop back in March. This was done on a stock Ranger and we plan to do more in the future. The Ranger we have now is no longer stock so testing now will be on the low end (lift, tires , etc now on our Ranger)

    Our short Economy loop was 37.2 miles. Tune : 87 daily tow , 1st run outside temp was 55F
    "Lieometer" showed 23.9 mpg, actual mileage was 21.74 with 1.711 gallons used

    Second run on the same exact economy loop with the stock flash, outside temp was 57F
    "Lieometer" still showed 23.9 with actual mileage being 19.60 and 1.897 gallons used

    Each time the truck was flashed at gas station so PCM could relearn a portion on the loop.
    Steady rate of speed at 70 mph with cruise on i95

    We plan on getting more solid data like this.

    The Lone Ranger tune is our "adaptive octane" tune that will allow you to fill up with any octane and have the tune adjust to that level of octane.

    Most of the shifting adjustments that are noticed are in the auto-shifting modes. With the manual shifting on these, firmness can be adjusted and if you end up with a tuner and it is not as "aggressive" or responsive ( or it is too much ), just let us know. We are happy to work with you on revisions.

    @5startuning does any of your group buy or discount pricing apply to the email tunes? I'm looking at buying the Ngauge from someone who bought it from you, but couldn't get it to work on their Ranger.

    Give us a call and mention the group buy, or just ask for Aaron. We can work out some type of discount for email tunes as well.

    So far the 87 Daily tow and Lone Ranger tunes have been amazing as far as performance! Definitely a different truck in a good way! My only complaints are my mileage took a good hit from 23 ave to 19.5 ave hwy on my commute. Also, down shifts from 3-1 are clunky. Some of the decline in mileage may be that your tempted to get on the gas now because its fun! Lol! Maybe 5 star will work on mileage improvements for these tunes? Overall happy!
