Superchip's come with different settings. Performance, towing and a fuel saver. Personally I got my superchip tuner for performance and have yet to try anything else. I've heard that it does really well with your fuel management though!

No clue. I haven't used a SuperChips in some years and my use was more performance oriented than efficiency.

Are they claiming some mpg improvement?

I don't think anyone ever uses the fuel saver. It's probably just a teaser, cause when you feel the power improvements with the power setting you just forget all about saving gas.

I run mine on 91 with premi and honestly it's not that much more to run premium instead of regular and the power is worth the extra few bucks.

If I remember right it changed mine 1-2 mpgs highway and nothing in the city but like everybody else it wasn't worth it and programmed it for the higher octane gas.
