It looks like the computer software is making it hard to edit. This is from HPTuners forum

Are they allowed to do millage tunes? I've always heard from HPT that they are not allowed to give access to the parameters that would allow you to tweek things that would increase MPG because of red tape from EPA.

edit:
I did some digging in this. It looks like Lean Cruise Mode is disabled for all american cars. Apperently it is due to emmisions. You will get better millage with Lean Cruise Mode on, but emissions will be worse. This is only available for cars outside the US because the EPA made it unlawful for the tuner companies to allow access to this parameter in the program.

So there may be MPG tunes using the availble parameters, but you could get better MPG is Lean Cruise Mode was available.

Quote:
14.7 is the best for emmisions, which i guess is why the US doesn't allow lean cruise.

Using less fuel is what lean cruise is all about not emissions although the two are obviously related (like i burned 80 gallons of fuel in a nice way, but you only burned 70 in a not so nice way... which is worse? The EPA decided that one for you). We will not allow you to change the enable/disable status of lean cruise via the editor as Ken said before.

As this would put us in direct violation with the EPA laws, we are not even going there.

Ken
I guess the other tuning parameters are OK because they are considered off road use, but lean cruise is not off road use because you wouldn't need lean cruise at the track. This is why it violates EPA rules.

We have been doing economy tunes for fleets of light trucks & vans for years. We guarantee them 1-3 MPG better or it's free and have yet to have any dissatisfied. We did get 7mpg better from a 3/4 ton GMC van...but it was a freak.

We also give the fleet owners the option to have the vehicle limited to max RPM, MPH, etc. to save on service & maintanace from employee abuse.

A guy on C5 called about it and it was a website error. Diablo and HP are not available for the V6 Camaro. We have been trying to get them to offer it and they say there is not enough market or not enough gains. I am 100% sure Trifecta is the only V6 Camaro tune. Now tuners can get into the transmission and tune that but that is is.

I figured you can do something to help mpg using available parameters. Can you access Lean Cruise?

Yup!
In this case I would not just contact Hypertec, but contact them all. The more developers that get request by more people the more chance they will persue a fix to the problem.

We have. I have another older thread on here about that. We have been trying for a long time. Sending in requests and posting on vendors blogs. I think that is why we finally got through to Hyper. That and maybe they saw that Vince finally got 13hp out of a stock block.

I think the issue here is that there are not enough people really going into their forums showing interest. Compare the thread started on the Diablosport website for the V6 Camaro:

View topic - 2010 V6 Camaro :: DiabloSport :: Gas and Diesel Tuning Systems

To the one I started a few years back for the V6 LX's:

View topic - Support the V6 LX guys... :: DiabloSport :: Gas and Diesel Tuning Systems

We had pages upon pages of people going on the website. Our tuners really didn't do much in the HP/TQ. area but sure did help out with many other features. Just need to be perisitent.
