Bad MPG's after tune and intake

Like title says, cause I can't keep my foot off the gas hahaha. Man you guys weren't kidding when you said the car is reborn. Also want to thank American muscle for good customer service and great product. No complaints here.

yeah man, I also noticed AMs race tune runs a lot more rich than stock, so that is going to bring down your MPG's as well. but more power!

Enjoy safely! The sound of the intake, and all the extra power doesn't get old anytime soon. Trust me. Been working with Mike Wilson at AM on my shift points and pressures, just test ran a new tune a few minutes ago, AM's customer service is Great!!

Remember when you first got the car? It felt like a rocket. Now that you've tuned the car, wait a month and then return to stock. It won't even feel like the same car you purchased. It will feel slow. Amazing what a tune can do.

American Muscle. They will work with you until you're happy.

I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.

Same thing happen to me after uploading the 91R tune. No matter how i drove, fast or slow, more pedal less pedal, didn't matter I still couldn't break 22mpg on my normal commute. I recently uploaded the 91P tune and to my great surprise, I now get a "stock like" 26-27mpg on the same commute, while only losing a tiny bit of performance overall.

I don't have the tuner yet... Looks like the 91P performance tune is where I plan to start, but I see you are running 91H. What is the difference?
