Default gas mileage

Can the cylinder unloading point be adjusted to increase gas mileage. Any other suggestions?

By allowing the engine to run a larger percentage of time in 4 cyl mode. It seems that it unloads a very small percentage of the time

Oh, I think I know what he'* talking about now.

You would need some sort of programmer for those type of V8'* to change it. I'm not even sure if HPTuners can touch it. You can search their forum if you want...
