Eco tune is doubtful, however, it seems like gas mileage may have improved. I say 'may' because I haven't kept my foot out of it long enough to tell. Considering the amount of 'hooning' I've been doing lately, it seems like mileage has improved.

Hmm yeah I was just wondering because I haven't seen anyone talk about mileage and for me it's a factor as well in what I choose

As long as you keep your foot out of it, your fuel economy should improve with a tune and mods. I know it can be tough sometimes to keep a light enough foot when the engine response so well after a tune. One thing you could get that I have seen in the past is a device that regulates how fast and how much the throttle opens when you press the gas petal. I wish I could remember the name of it. It basically is a small box with an Econ, normal, and sport modes. The mode you pick determines how "responsive" the car is.

Sprint Booster now makes one for the KM3. It costs as much as some tuners.
