Just wondering do you think its a good or bad idea to activate the Economy Fuel option on your SCT Tunes. I heard that it limits the fuel and can cause knocking in the engine. Just wanted to know peoples opinions.
A Mustang is NOT ment to be Fuel Efficent, if you want a Fuel Efficent FORD you should have bought a Focus:gringreen Now dont take me the wrong way but (you) Guy's that are worried about getting better Gas Mileage from your Stang (and Im NOT referring to You) should have just left your Stangs Stock and Not put on a CAI and bought a Tuner. Im getting tired of saying this.....93 Octane Gas is Just 20 Cents More a Gallon to buy than 87 Octane, so that figures out to mabey about $4 a Gallon more to fill up with 93 than 87. If $4 is gonna Break you then you should'nt have bought a Mustang, or one that requires a Good 93 Octane Tune to make it Run like it should.Just wondering do you think its a good or bad idea to activate the Economy Fuel option on your SCT Tunes.

Yea you have a Great Mustang, I would'nt sell it either:bigthumbsup Put the Pedal to the Floor and let Her Run:bigthumbsupI just wanted to know more about the option on my SCT, not gonna change my current settings which are great, also I ove my mustang not even considering getting rid of it, I love the 4.10 kick when I stomp the gas from light to light, cannot get rid of that. But cuttings Timmys is hard its a canadien thing, gotta love those icedcaps
good advice. make sure its tuned up as best it can be, air up the tires good, and thats all you get. i do get much better mileage with the race tune and 93 octane than i get from the 87 performance tune. and that was even before the ethanol came into play this past year. i havent gone back to 87 for 2 yrs now4.10's should use less gas than higher ratio gears in stop-and-go driving. However, not stomping on the gas pedal at every stop light will improve your car's mpg without doing anything else.
WRT the SCT's fuel economy option, just try it. If the engine runs ok and the mpg increases, you're good to go. If the engine pings and/or the mpg decreases, disable it.
