If it makes more power it burns more fuel.. it could also affect your emissions..

Can't speak to the V10 but my 7.3 was like a new engine had been installed. No mods except the tuner, synthetic oil and clean filters, I'm set to the lowest "tow" program advertised +80 hp. Millage has stayed about the same but I have noticeably more pulling power, less downshifting on cruse and NO black smoke on acceleration.

We have the superchips tow tune in our Excursion with a K&N air filter and the exhaust Y- pipe and it really perked the Excursion up. A friend has the 5- Star tune and he tows a 15000 5th wheel and he loves it. The only problem he told me about is that he is getting a free flow air filter and the Y-pipe also and he has to get Mike to update his tune.
