    Superchip? Anyone add one and what results did you see?

    I'm thinking about adding a superchip to my 2011 6.2L Escalade. Not so much for more power but better mileage. I run premium and a full tank a month of non-ethnol premium too. I also run a can of injection cleaner about 2 times a year. Even freeway MPG is poor. I only get about 15MPG average.

    Re: Superchip? Anyone add one and what results did you see?

    What is the EPA fuel economy rating on the original window sticker ? What do other members with the same powertrain get in city/suburban/highway driving?

    A "superchip" is usually a 5 cent resistor in a cutesy box that goes into the IAT (Intake Air temp) sensor wiring to fool the system into thinking the air is several degrees colder than actual = richer fuel mixture = poor gas mileage and NO performance gains.

    Your gross over-use of fuel system cleaners is adding to the cost of driving while providing little or no gains. Run a TopTier gasoline - Google it.
