will microtuner mess up factory MPG computer?

I'm curious, will the factory MPG computer read accurately with the superchips microtuner? I've heard there is a problem, but haven't seen it addressed here. Is there a fix? Thanks, Mike

Nope, chips and tuners make the OHC go wacky. Mine generally reads arount 28mpg when I'm getting an actual 17. No known fix that I am aware of.

You'll find that it throws off the value shown but at least it will be consistantly off so once you have a baseline you can then add or subtract from the display and get an idea of your true mileage.
