I would speculate that something else is wrong. Clogged Cat maybe? I have a
stock non-chipped sedan. When setting cruise on 100 in MT, I still get over
20mpg. Doesnt take any boost to maintain 100 so I would think that the chip
wasn't doing too much differently than a stock chip. I routinely get 24-25
mpg for the 252 mile trip from my place in MT to Post Falls ID and that's
crossing two mountain passes and driving 80 ish most of the way.
