    I don't personally buy into that snake oil. The only thing that will help mileage is a light foot and possibly tuning the computer. JMHO.

    A handheld programmer to tune the computer is the best option. Several of them offer an "economy" tune, in addition to performance tunes.

    Anything that calls itself a "chip" doesn't belong in an Escalade, EVER.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    I would get a westers tune...it his a hard tune in to the PCM...I can give you the gusy info who did mine...gets rid of the lag when stepping on the gas, also gives it a firmer shift, more power, and better fuel mileage...it also is pretty close to the cost of the good hand held programers but tunes a lot more perameters.

    Sounds to me like he got a custom tune done, I'm sure he will chime in to clarify though. For the average end user the handheld box tuners are an easier product to purchase and do yourself.
