I recently bought a 2014 CTD (automatic) that already has tons of upgrades to it like a full delete, fleece tuned with an EFILive programmer. As I look through the different options on the programmer, there is no "economy" mode. Is there a different (better) programmer that everyone recommends that gives me an "economy" mode, and allows me to change the modes on the fly? Maybe the programmer that I have allows me to do it. I don't know, I haven't tried to change it while driving. I would also like to monitor my trans temp. I did read on a forum that the scantronII allows me to monitor trans temp. I also read about the option of using an Android device with some apps to do some different things. This car is solely a commuter car for me to drive the exact same 138 miles round trip to and from work, and maybe the occasional vacation road trip. Any tips to help me get better mileage would be appreciated. Yesterday was my best day yet according to the mileage "game" set at 50 mile history.

And you can either use an Ultragauge MX or a ScanGauge II, or there are a few app choices like Ultragauge Blue and Torque that you can use in conjunction with a bluetooth OBDII dongle.

heh. dongle.

Copy all. I consider myself a very aware driver, and am constantly trying to get the best fuel mileage. With that being said, I'm too lazy to not use cruise control on the interstate or long flat stretches of highway roads. Thanks for the input.

You can't get much better mileage, considering u have the full delete already. That's what frees the car up for better mileage and power. About all you can do now, is learn how to use the right foot.

Use cruise @ 60mph and you'll be shocked how good it gets.

Full delete is a one tune only
So, the "EFILive" thing (I am calling it a programmer, but that's probably not right) that plugs into the OBDII is just for clearing and reading codes? It has at least five different "tunes" that I can select. I've left it as "stock", because all of the other options are ones that would get me less mpg's.
But your saying that there's only one tune. Did Fleece use that programmer to deliver the one tune that is required with the full delete? Sorry for being naive on this, I'm just trying to learn as much as I can about the car.

that thing that you plug in is the spade an maybe the previous owner had the tunes that fleece offered before they offered a full delete tune. I have those tunes from fleece,4 tunes total stock ,30 hp ,40 hp an 50 hp. all are used with emission system intact. I will be calling fleece to see if they can sell an send me the delete tune so I can down load on to my spade an buy pipe etc to complete. I`m thinking this is what you may have. been running the 30hp tune for 2 years with more power an better on fuel with zero problems.
