SuperChips FlashPaq Roadtest

Started my road test, I will update with additional posts as the trip progresses.

Date Miles Gallons Price MPG Notes

#1) 7/05/09 149.0 12.837 $3.02 11.6 Peoria AZ to Blythe CA Highyway @ 75 mph (92 Octane)

#2) 7/07/09 216.0 15.686 $2.86 13.8 Blythe CA to Pasadena CA @ 65 mph (91 Octane)

#3) 7/07/09 145.0 10.215 $2.84 14.2 Pasadena CA to Love's Truckstop #230 @ 65 mph (87 Octane)

#4) 7/08/09 236.0 17.173 $2.93 13.7 Truck Stop to Sacramento CA @ 65 mph (87 Octane)

For this test I locked in the cruise control upon entering the highway and left it alone until I exited the highway.

I filled the Commander in Peoria with 92 Octane fuel.

The first reading (#1) was OEM tires and the flashpaq set at factory settings. At 75 mph I received a mpg or 12.837

The second reading (#2) was the same set up but a reduced speed of 65 mph and I received 13.8 mpg, so I picked up 1 mpg by reducing my speed 10 miles per hour (no other adjustments were made)

Upon arriving in Pasadena California I set the Flashpaq for the 87 Octane setting and made no other changes. I filled up with 87 Octane prior to leaving town.

Reading #3 was from Pasadena California to a truck stop along I-5 where I stopped for fuel, at this point I was getting 14.2 mpg It was a little better than when I ran 91 Octane on the two previous tanks but not a major improvement. One interesting thing about this section of the trip is that I drove over the grape vine which is a pretty big hill for those unfamiliar with it, I got 38 mpg all the way down which certainly helped in the higher mpg that I show on this leg of the trip.

I filled up again in Sacramento with 87 octane fuel and discovered that I had gotten 13.7 mpg so it did not appear that the 87 v 91 octane setting had a significant increase in MPG, but what it did do was allow me to run a cheaper fuel with no lose to the overall mpg.

Prior to departing Sacramento I will be reprogramming the Commander for the next test and reporting on those gains if any.

Is there a reason that you have it setup for OEM tires. WOuldnt it be better to adjust for the size you are currently running? Or did I misunderstand you.

I put my OEM tires back on my Commander before I started on my trip. Since all my miles are going to be on the pavement I thought I would save the tread that is on my BFG's for Colorado.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this information collected and entered into www.fuelly.com

Post # 1 shows my first 4 fill-ups but I am going to repeat the information so that it is all together in one place.

The first four fill-ups were in the "87 Octane" setting and ranged from 11.6 mpg to 14.2 mpg with an average of 13.3 mpg

I then changed the setting to the "mileage XS" setting for the remainder of the first portion of my road trip. During this portion I filled up a total of 8 times and had a range from 13.0 mpg to 15.2 mpg with an overall average of 14.0 mpg

It would appear that the "mileage XS" mode increased my mpg by at least .7 mpg which then ended up saving me a little bit of money which was the desired effect.
