are you running larger rims @ tires ? w/out odometer gear change it may be showing 10% less miles on it or more. my son had this on his new tahoe @ got rid of it because of poor mileage. doitnow!!

Depending on what is used in the gas to boost the octane, you may get much worse mileage with high octane gas than with 'normal' gas. In addition to going back to the stock tune to test, I'd try a different brand of gas. Also check the basics--are your tires inflated properly? Is a brake dragging? Did this low-mileage situation just start "out of the blue", or did it correspond with adding the 93-octane tune or adding accessories?

2006 300C Brilliant Black--mostly stock.. 91 octane Predator tune
