Diablo tune

Post by Kevin33 »

I installed the diablo tune from the diablo intune i3 8245 for GM vehicles and was wondering if I should be running 93 octane fuel instead of 87 octane ?

YES!!! The "Diablo Tune" is a high-octane tune... you have to be using 91-93 octane gas in the vehicle to use the "Diablo Tune"!!!

If you're only using 87/89 octane gas in the truck, then you need to select/install the 87 Octane Tune...

Ok thank you I thought the diablo tune was a flex tune and could run on any grade fuel as the vehicle has a flex fuel sensor ...

So I’m assuming running E85 is not an option also ?

If your GM vehicle is a factory Flex-Fuel vehicle, yes you can... and will get worse gas mileage from the e85.... if your GM vehicle is NOT a factory flex-fuel vehicle, then no, you can't run E85.....

Yes it’s factory flex fuel ..Ok so what I’m getting at is since I loaded the diablo performance tune and it’s a high octane tune I can actually run E85 but will get worse gas mileage correct?

On that car the Diablo Tune is for 93 octane gas.

Use the 91 Octane tune if you use 91 octane gas.

you need a custom tune to enable the sensor and ideally to populate the flex side of the cal.
