Default Super Chip?

It really seems to work out well. I can definitely get another solid day of driving in before I have to fill up the tank again. Hey one more day is worth it with the cost it takes to fill up our SUV's!
What brand super chip and where did you get it?

I got mine from my uncle's car accessory business. But you can get them online. Mine is called "FlashPaq". It's not a chip that you install into your vehicle physically.. All you do is plug it into the vehicle diagnostic port (located under the steering wheel) and it saves your factory computer settings, and allows you to switch it from one of the presaved program adjustments on the handheld itself. That way you can't use it on any vehicle but your own, and if you need to return it to stock, lets say to have your truck in for repairs and you don't want to void your warranty for tampering with the computer program, you can just plug it in, and return your vehicle to stock, and the "economic" setting is resaved again by the handheld.. All it does is switch them back and forth. Good buy though!

I've been considering a cold air induction system for my 2002 Tahoe in order to help the fuel economy. I drive about 100 miles a day going to work and back, so I need to squeeze all the economy out of my truck that I can. Is anyone running an induction system that you can recommend / not recommend?

I just installed an AFE Stage II CAI. I also installed a Wicked Exhaust System w/ dual exhausts. I immediately noticed a gain in MPG. Maybe 2MPG's.

So MPG is a hot topic these days. I am disappointed with my gas mileage on my 2005 Z71. We took a 420 mile road trip, all highway miles from the bay area to Anaheim. My MPG on the way down was 17.6 - on the way home it was 17. I read about all these people getting 20+ MPG, but I don't see how it's possible. My city MPG is bad, about 10. My tires were inflated to 32 PSI (just above recommendation). Any suggestions?

an intake and exhaust, if you have enough get a programmer or go with an custom tune for best mpg. to be honest, 17mpg is not bad you might be able to get as much as 21mpg when your done with that. good luck
