    I got this link from another forum. Has anyone heard of this chip and if so what? Does anyone have any 1st hand experience with it?

    I have to wonder about the fuel mileage increase claims.

    I just read about this.

    Does anyone have any experience with this guy's tunes?

    He claims 4 to 7 MPG gain hand calculated, as well as a stronger "bottom end" power band with his DURAMILEAGE tune.

    He say on his website:
    With the capability to "Fine-Tune" over 50+ potential fuel tables and engine functions... our primary tuning option for the Duramax diesel is our High-Mileage Fuel Economy Tunes... which also provide modest horsepower gains of 65HP for improved towing.
    He charges $395 to re-flash your ECM. Add $300 if you want him to program a replacement (pre-owned) ECM. That way you can keep your original ECM stock.

    A 7 MPG gain would be very impressive, but a little hard to believe.

    I hate to direct anyone back to the other site but there is some really good information about this. Take a look at post #12. This member had this unit and did not get the gains promised.http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/sho...ht=DURAMILEAGE

    Thanks for the link Bill.

    The first guy in that thread (cowdoc) says that he did get more power, better than the Predator on 65hp, but the best fuel economy improvement he managed to get was maybe 5% or 0.8 mpg, not the 25 to 35% (or 4 to 7 mpg) promised. After two different tunes, he is getting his money back.

    The second guy (falcon58) says that he is now getting 18.5 mpg at 75 and 80, hand calculated and if he drives 65 he gets 21/22. Then, as an after-thought, he throws in that those are Imperial Gallons.

    Well, an Imperial gallon is 20% larger that a U.S. gallon. So if we correct his fuel mileage to US gallons, he is actually getting 15.4 mpg at 70/80 and 17.5/18.3 mpg at 65 MPH.

    Heck I'm doing better than that on my pure stock truck! So this DURAMILEAGE tune is "more bark than bite!"

    Cowdoc's reported results are much more believable because he actually took the time to correct his speedometer/odometer with a GPS.

    What I'm seeing is that many people who claim they are getting these unbelievable numbers are just taking the MPG numbers from the DIC (which usually is WAY OFF when a tune is added). Others may be hand calculating, but if they don't correct their odometer readings they are not getting an accurate number. If your odometer and speedometer are OFF by a mere 1-mph/1-mile at 50, most people will say "that's close enough". But in reality 1 mile in 50 means that your speedometer/odometer is OFF by 2% or more right off the bat. Add that to the fact that most people don't take the time to insure that they are filling their tank to the same exact spot every time and you can add a lot inconsistencies to your calculations.

    Diesel fuel foams a lot when being pumped into the truck's fuel tank, especially in the summer heat. This causes the dispensing pumps to shut off at different amounts of fill. Sometimes the difference can be as much a 1 gallon or more. Most people will only top off a couple of more clicks on the pump's auto shut-off and call it good, but if you want accurate fuel economy calculations, that is not good enough. You have to ensure that you fill to the same exact spot in the tank every single time, to get an accurate comparison.

    Additionally, all fuel dispensing pumps are NOT created equal. Not all of them will read a 100% accurate measure, especially here in the US where gas stations are NOT required to temperature compensate their pump, so in warm weather you are actually getting LESS BTU's per gallon than you would in cold weather out of the same pump. When you compound those inaccuracies with the fact that "Winter Blend" has less BTU's per gallon compared to "Summer Blend", plus not every refiner gets the same amount of energy from a gallon of #2 diesel fuel (there is even a difference from batch to batch from the same refiners), it is hard to get an accurate comparison, unless you control all possible variables. Most of us don't have the equipment or the time to run such controlled tests.

    A/C ON or OFF can mean as much as 7 to 10% difference in fuel economy. Ambient temperature; cross-winds/head-winds/tail-winds; traffic conditions; tire size, tread design, tread compound and air pressure, all can potentially make a huge difference.

    All these variables added to the fact that human nature tends to make a person more likely to want to justify their investment, especially if they spent a lot of money for the tune or aftermarket equipment, make it very hard to sort out fact from fiction.

    I have run very extensive tests (several thousand miles back-to-back) with calibrated equipment, and the best I have ever seen is an ACTUAL 5% improvement in fuel economy. This is only my own personal experience; it doesn't mean that others can't get better mileage with different tunes, etc.

    Depending on the price of the tune/tuner and the price of diesel fuel, the amount of miles and time required to recover that initial investment can be VERY LONG and may NOT be worth the hassle or the risk. Keep in mind that until you actually recover your initial investment from the savings, you are in the NEGATIVE with that purchase.

    In reality, the best "Bang for the Buck" I have gotten was by replacing the air filter element. My air filter element had over 29,000 miles on it, it still looked good and the gauge on the side of the air cleaner had never moved from the green, but my fuel economy had been consistently dropping over several months. That $60.15 +tax investment got me almost 3 mpg improvement. It paid for itself several times over during one single cross-country trip.

    I have NOT yet been able to find that "Magic Bullet" that will give me a consistently huge fuel economy improvement. It amounts to a combination of thing added to sensible pressure on the right foot that will get you the best fuel economy.

    That plus taking advantage of available drafting when prudent gets me to 19-20.5 mpg out of my stocker with regularity.

    Ray, you are correct about the fuel mileage points most of which people dont think of. I followed Cowdoc's information all the way to where he went with a Kennedy Diesel tune. I guess this Duramilage thing has been around for a bit found some more good reading on it.

    Ray, I can tell you about Kennedy's tune. I have the tow/perf custom tune and love it. I can get 20+ on the interstate around 70-75 mph empty. I also can get 12-14 mpg on the interstate pulling a 35' TT at 10,000lbs. Shifts great, smooth power and no problems at all.
    I do not believe there are any tunes that will net over 21mpg consistantly on a stock motor. Even the Diesel Power Mag had Tomac at 24mpg in the Challange and said he was drafting as much as possible.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Those are very impressive numbers. I've read some good things about Kennedy's tunes. but I have ZERO experience with EFILive and obviously no personal experience with Kennedy's tunes, so I'm intrigued.

    Can you give us more information about your experience?

    Can you tell us more about your truck and what mods you have?

    Have you been running this Kennedy tune for a while?

    Did you have him recalibrate your speedometer for the larger tires and if so, how accurate is it now and do you correct your numbers for speedo error? Are these numbers hand calculated or from the DIC? If hand calc'd, how accurate is the DIC in your truck? (My experience with aftermarket programmers has been that they throw the DIC way off and they are generally quite a hassle to get good accurate speedo calibrations - but I don't know how EFILive handles that.)

    Are you able to fill your tank to the same exact spot every time when you have checked your fuel economy to ensure good consistency? I know that many times this not possible due to fuel foaming and other impatient drivers waiting to use the pump.

    Did you have John re-flash your ECM or did you get one of his replacement ECM's and keep the original stock unit? How is the driveability (i.e. performance, shifting, EGT, smoke, etc.)

    Are those number with the A/C ON or OFF?

    What kind of tire pressures are you running? What tires? Load Range?

    Have you upgraded your transmission?

    Are you using any kind of fuel additive?

    How do these mods/tune compare to the time when your truck was pure stock?

    Finally, how much was the tune? (Feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting this information)

    Sorry for all the questions, but those numbers are very appealing.

    Thanks for your time and patience with my questions.

    Can you give us more information about your experience? The experience with John was great. Listened to what I wanted, what I had and helped me decide what I needed. The tune is best I have had. I have had a flashpaq and have driven trucks with predator and Edge.

    Can you tell us more about your truck and what mods you have? Mods are 4" down pipe back, no cat, transgo jr, K&N intake, Autometer guages (boost and EGT)
    Truck is an 06 LBZ CC/SB SLE


    Have you been running this Kennedy tune for a while? Two years

    Did you have him recalibrate your speedometer for the larger tires and if so, how accurate is it now and do you correct your numbers for speedo error? Are these numbers hand calculated or from the DIC? If hand calc'd, how accurate is the DIC in your truck? (My experience with aftermarket programmers has been that they throw the DIC way off and they are generally quite a hassle to get good accurate speedo calibrations - but I don't know how EFILive handles that.)He did recalibrate for tires, 285-75/17
    Seems to be right on. I checked it to my 06 Yukon which is stock, running 55 and seemed to be within a mph or 2.
    The fuel is hand calculated at first. I compared to the DIC and the DIC is accurate in my truck with this tune. I compared several times. I do fill my truck into the neck everytime. I noticed at about 50K miles my mileage jumped quite a bit. Maybe 1.5 or so. I have checked it with the AC on and off and there is not much difference.


    Are you able to fill your tank to the same exact spot every time when you have checked your fuel economy to ensure good consistency? I know that many times this not possible due to fuel foaming and other impatient drivers waiting to use the pump. I fill it into the neck everytime but may not be exactly same spot everytime. By neck, I don't mean where it turns to go to the tank but if I put the nozzle back in fully the tip of the nozzle would be in the diesel.

    Did you have John re-flash your ECM or did you get one of his replacement ECM's and keep the original stock unit? How is the driveability (i.e. performance, shifting, EGT, smoke, etc.) I bought a new ECM. My truck was still under warrenty and wanted to have the stock ECM just in case.
    This is my daily driver/work truck. I own an electrical contracting business and my truck stays on the road. It drives like stock until you want a little more. Low smoke but it is there when mashing the peddle. Shifts like stock, only a firmer with the JR.. I tow a 10k TT and have never seen 1350 on the pyro. Thats on some pretty steep grades too. This summer headed to WV for the weekend my cooling fan engaged on the first long mountain pull for the first time ever and still no higher than 1350 on the pyro. He also turned the EGR off and said I would not need a finger stick and blocker plate.


    Are those number with the A/C ON or OFF? Both

    What kind of tire pressures are you running? What tires? Load Range? BFG AT 285/70-17, D, 65 in all four

    Have you upgraded your transmission? Transgo Jr.

    Are you using any kind of fuel additive? No. When I get the chance lately I try to run BP diesel. It seems to be better than some others. It has a 47 cetane rating and I seem to get a little better mileage. Otherwise I run a name brand from a reputable station

    How do these mods/tune compare to the time when your truck was pure stock? I enjoy driving the truck more so now than when it was stock. When I want to go it goes. Also it holds the gear longer now than when stock. In other words when pulling a hill empty, and running 55 it would down shift to maintain 55, Now it doesn't. I'm talking about hills that require the truck to downshift not just any hill. This could be the result of the JR or a combination, I'm not sure.

    Finally, how much was the tune? (Feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting this information)
    http://www.kennedydiesel.com/ Check out the web site.

    Sorry for all the questions, but those numbers aver very appealing.

    Thanks for your time and patience with my questions.



    Keep in mind I carry about 300-500 lbs of tools and materials in truck boxes daily.

    John also said he dynoed the tune on a stock truck with stock exhaust and intake. The numbers where around 370 rwhp and 700 tq. I am thinking of dynoing mine for the hell of it and when or if I do I will let you know.

    Another thing about this tune is it comes on from idle. Most box tunes don't kick in until 1200-1500 rpm. Atleast Flashpaq and a few others anyway. There is no defuel or feeling of once the tranny learns the power either.



    The ease of this is great. I get the benefits of EFILIVE without the programming headache.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    CtChevy427 invited me over to join this conversation so I will try to help. I noticed that t2ch has already responded but I will give you my take as well. I have gotten as high as 20.8 mpg on the interstate @ 72 mph, but I usually average right around 20. Most of my driving is on country roads @ 60 mph. I average 18+ with this type of driving. I am convinced that if I could stay at a constant 60-65 mph on a long trip I would average around 22 mpg, but who can do that. If you have checked out the threads that have been referenced here, you will know that all my numbers are hand calculated and GPS verified. Now i will try to answer you questions.

    Can you give us more information about your experience? John is a top notch guy. He helped me out in every way that I asked him to and answered every question that I had, before and after the sale; and believe me, I had a lot of them.

    Can you tell us more about your truck and what mods you have? I have an'07 CC 4x4 LT2 with a 4" turbo back MBRP exhaust, 265/75/16 tires on factory wheels, PPE aibox mod, and I am using an Edge EVO for gauges. I have used a Predator, EVO, Hypertech Max Energy, and the Duramileage ECM on this truck, and the JK custom tune is the best I have run so far.

    Have you been running this Kennedy tune for a while? I guess I have been running it for about -3 months.

    Did you have him recalibrate your speedometer for the larger tires Yes and if so, how accurate is it now It is dead on by my GPS and do you correct your numbers for speedo error? No need to Are these numbers hand calculated or from the DIC? hand calculated If hand calc'd, how accurate is the DIC in your truck? For some reason, the DIC is variable. Sometimes it reads high, sometimes low, and sometimes dead on. I think it depends on how I drive it. On hiway trips, the DIC is usually dead on or even a little low. On daily driving and towing it is usually high. (My experience with aftermarket programmers has been that they throw the DIC way off and they are generally quite a hassle to get good accurate speedo calibrations - but I don't know how EFILive handles that.)

    Are you able to fill your tank to the same exact spot every time when you have checked your fuel economy to ensure good consistency? I know that many times this not possible due to fuel foaming and other impatient drivers waiting to use the pump. I fill 'er to the brim every time.

    Did you have John re-flash your ECM or did you get one of his replacement ECM's and keep the original stock unit? I bought the replacement ECM so I could go back to stock for dealer visits. How is the driveability (i.e. performance, shifting, EGT, smoke, etc.) Drivability is at least as good as stock. Shifts are firm but smooth. There is very little smoke. EGT's are very close to stock, maybe a little cooler empty and slightly higher while towing. The power is felt throughout the rpm band.

    Are those number with the A/C ON or OFF? Both.

    What kind of tire pressures are you running? What tires? Load Range? I am running Hankook 265/75/16 load range E inflated to 75 lbs.

    Have you upgraded your transmission? No.

    Are you using any kind of fuel additive? I usually use Diesel Kleen Power Service in the silver bottle.

    How do these mods/tune compare to the time when your truck was pure stock? I enjoy driving the truck more so now than when it was stock. When I want to go it goes. Also it holds the gear longer now than when stock. In other words when pulling a hill empty, and running 55 it would down shift to maintain 55, Now it doesn't. I'm talking about hills that require the truck to downshift not just any hill. Sounds a lot like what t2ch said huh?

    Finally, how much was the tune? (Feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting this information) Check out his website. http://www.kennedydiesel.com/

    Sorry for all the questions, but those numbers are very appealing.

    Thanks for your time and patience with my questions. No problem and you are more than welcome.
    Hope this helps.

    I have to wonder about the fuel mileage increase claims.

    The Duramileage tune did give me some decent gains, but nowhere near the claims. I got low-mid 19's on the hiway and low 18's driving on country roads. I didn't have gauges at the time I tried it and I was a little nervous about the EGT's. They may have been fine but I was too chicken to chance it.
