I am sure Bob may be able to answer this question:

With the high price of diesel and since our Smarty programers allow us to program from mild to wild......


Is there anything in the works for a dedicated fuel savings setting in the works? Getting over 25-30mpg would be great!!

I am sure that certain power parameters can be adjusted to make this posable?

that would be nice
:agree2: Running around with SW9 loaded isn't cost effective :lol3: I burned 1/4 tank of fuel this weekend so far.:lol3:

I raised my fp up a notch and lost mileage. Minor reduction in smoke. It wasn't worth it.
Thanks.. I was curios as boxes like the MP-8 claim 2-4mpgs.

I gained mpg when I added pressure both with my edge/dr.p stack and added rail pressure with the smarty tnt, I would try it, it you don't get any more mpg go back to stock.

:agree2: ...ideally, pressure should increase mileage.


Unless a person starts stripping as much weight off as possible, lowers the truck, and either re-gears or does an overdrive, I don't forsee 25+mpgs with a programmer. My $0.02. Smarty timing #4 is about as far "adjusted" as you can get...

I've heard the same thing also, especially with larger injector nozzles.

Ok I went into the REVO setting and set it to:
TM=0
Timing=4
RP=0

SW=5

Seem to be getting better fuel milage but only time will tell.

It would be cool if there was a way to program the computer to shut off some of the cylinders when cruising down the Hwy as that would save even more fuel. I think the Cummins would have no problem at all at sustaining speed. Wishful thinking I guess...

The wonderful thing about a diesel is, they ONLY use as much fuel as necessary. When you are cruising it is ONLY using the fuel necessary to sustain the speed you are set at. That is why it's important to keep boost down. Boost is directly related to load...making sense?

Which gets better mileage, Revo or TNT-Revo?
From what I hear, the TNT has considerably different timing curves...which means it might yield better mileage. I have yet to load up the TNT, though...

I am running TNT sw#3 , rp 0 (EZ on 1) , tm 4, time 4,and my last 2 tanks I got 21.6 ,and 21.4. I am very pleased with the way I have it set up now. I'm not going to mess with it any more for now, I don't want to go the other way.
I am running the Juice on 0.

I might have to give these new downloads a look, because I am with the regular catcher software. :popcorn::popcorn:

REVO SW7 Tm2 Time4 RP1 WG0 seems to keep the boost as low as possible and the RPMs climb smoother. Mid throttle pedal modulatation is worse than 4.11, but it does appear that the high SW7 along with the extra timing will give better mileage. Tough to say now that the A/C is running since we are in the midst of a heat wave.
