I am very pleased with my recent purchase of my Edge Evolution CTS Programmer. I have a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500 HD with a 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel and an Allison transmission. I put the very user frienly CTS Programmer on it, all I can say is WOW! It's like driving a Corvette with 33 inch Nitto Mud Grapplers and a truck bed! Absolutely amazing! On my 30 minute trip home on a winding country highway full of hills, I went from 13.5 mpg avg to a 19 mpg avg. I am tickled to death with my purchase. On level 4 (exreme) you can be running at 35-40 mph and white smoke the back tires( 33 inch Nitto Mud Grapplers! I don't recommend it though! Spinning tires that is. 7174

I've used it for 3 months. The mileage calculated by the device is consistently high. After checking mileage by the old fashioned method in average terrain (not flat), I have concluded that economy mode will yield 1MPG better on the road and no improvement around town. Extreme is fun to use but on the road mileage will fall to about 10-11MPG (from 12-14MPG average) even if you drive somewhat conservatively. Trailer towing mode consistently yields 1MPG improvement. I was getting about 8.1-8.2MPG towing my 8800lb 5th wheel before Edge. With the Edge in towing mode, I get 9.1MPG and the shift program makes it a lot easier to drive in the hills. This device will frequently indicate average 18MPG, but it is not realistic and does not even match the factory mileage computer which is about 0.5-1MPG high. The absolute best I got in the economy mode, unloaded, on average terrain was 15.4MPG. I would normally get in the mid to high 14MPG range at best. I am pleased with the Economy mode and I certainly appreciate that 9.1MPG while towing. If I were buying again, I would not pay extra for the touch screen. If you are an amateur radio operator, you need to be prepared for RF interference in the 2M band. It reminds me of the garbage you hear when you get near the LED traffic signals. It will overwhelm your APRS signals or weak simplex signals because you will need to raise the squelch so high to get above the interference. 87480
I Bought this tuner for my 02 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD 6.0 and absolutely love it. This tuner gives you the power you need in any situation. The Economy tune is letting me get 18 miles to the gallon in this hog. 6 mpg improvement!! The towing tune is great. Allows me to pull my 27 ft toy hauler up any hill like nothing. Has a few different gauge setups to fit your style. I think This product is overall the best one out there. Very recommended. 62679
great product but cant adjust power level on the fly and also have to remove a fuse under the hood to adjust the power level. if i knew this before would have went with other brand on their site 111136
