  • Fuel Efficiency Gains with the Superchips Flashpaq F5 on a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Crew Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at Superchips and found that the estimated miles per gallon gain with the Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner is 10 to 15 percent when tuned for the Mileage XS Save tune. This gain is not guaranteed as it can be affected by many factors. The Superchips tuners are tested on stock vehicles without any modifications. If you have any other engine or appearance modifications such as larger wheels, then the that will effect the fuel efficiency. Another factor that will effect...

  • Difference Between Superchips Flashpaq Tuners for 2010 Ford F-150
  • The Superchips Flashpaq F5 Pro # SU1545, also called the Flachcal, is for competition and race use only, is specifically for the Ford F-150 and does not offer the amount of features that the Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner # SU4845 does. The easiest way to put it is that the Flashcal is essentially a calibration device, while the Flashpaq F5 is a performance tuner.

  • Does Using Tow Modes in Superchips Flashpaq Tuner Increase the Towing Capacity of a Vehicle
  • there isn't really a specific capacity or anything when in the various tow modes of SuperChips Flashpaq tuner # SU1845. You are still limited to whatever the truck can tow according to its owners manual. You would also have to follow the programmer's instructions for the correct octane of fuel to use in a given mode. The tow modes make sure that you have the power in order to tow easier but they cannot increase the capacity of the truck.

  • The Superchips Flashpaq # SU4845 and Edge EvoHT2 # EP86040 are essentially the same tuner just with a different look. Both companies are under the same parent company umbrella.

  • How to Improve Gas Mileage 2009 Dodge Ram 4.7L V8

The exact MPG increase you will see from the tuner varies from vehicle to vehicle but some customers have reported an increase of up to 5 MPG's. In addition to fuel economy, the Flashpaq...

  • Programmer Recommendation for 2011 Ford F150 Platinum 6.2L for Fuel Mileage
  • In a heavy and not-so-aerodynamic truck like your 2011 Ford F-150 that has a large displacement 6.2 liter V8 you'll never get "great" gas mileage, but a programmer like the part # SU1845 will give you a few extra miles per gallon. Or if you're really serious we have the programmer and monitor part # EP85450 which is also a fit that has a driving coach that will help you modify driving habits to increase mileage.

  • Superchips Tuner Function In Economy Tune
  • On your Superchip Tuner like Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner - GM - Gas/Diesel # SU2845 for your 2008 Sierra 1500, it does sound like you are shifting too soon. It will help your gas mileage to keep your RPM's down, but I would use a different tune to give you the power you need. For the best gas mileage, the economy setting is good but for power it is not a good fit. I personally don't think it is very safe to shift all your gears by 40 mph as that would make merging onto a...
