Xcalibrator 2 and Gasoline consumption

Well, after 3 tanks of gas since first installing the new tune I will claim a +2 MPG (16.5 city); I haven't been taking it easy either. I will go out on a limb and say I could squeeze out another few MPGs with a lighter foot.

Update:
I have had better results with the 87 octane tune than the 91 octane.
