Just to clarify there has been gde tuned trucks with catastrophic failures a tune is not the fix all some think it is hardware can and still well fail. But I definitely agree tuning would be extremely hard to prove it didn’t have something to due with the failure and fca well absolutely use that against you if they find out. The magnuson moss was mainly for service and repairs not performance parts.

Yes, that is correct. I have a very good relationship with my dealer and he values his customers.

4. My Fuelly is on my siggy below.
5. Pre GDE are fillups 1-51. I'm up to 207 fill-ups. There are some fill-ups between 51 and 207 without GDE. (Notes denote changes.)
I'm down to 24 average now. My MPGs have gone down steadily since I hit 60k. I don't know why, but it's really been disappointing. I removed the GDE tune around 70k for about 10k, and saw no change in MPG. What I found was the turbo lag was the biggest deal. I considered selling my GDE tuned chip, but the turbo lag was horrible, so I decided to keep it and put it back on the truck. However, I do not have any MPG improvements from the GDE tune.

I have to point out that those mpg's were EVIC and highly suspect for accuracy. However, doing the same trip, my home to Anchorage, 65 mpg, calm day, cruise control, without gde, 30 mpg, with gde, 33 mpg. But the reality very well could be something different as my EVIC and hand calculations never jive. My average summer mpg running around town mileage is about 26 mpg. In the winter now it's been running around the 22.5 the last two fill ups. Those are hand calculated.
