Tuning for consumption is in general a misconception as the better terminology would be OPTIMISAION.
This is defined as being able to tune or manipulate the ecu file to see stioch ratios which are 14.7:1 parts air to fuel.
'Air–fuel ratio (AFR) is the mass ratio of air to fuel present in an internal combustion engine. The AFR can also refer to the volume ratio for combustion carried out in industrial furnaces. If exactly enough air is provided to completely burn all of the fuel, the ratio is known as the stoichiometric mixture, often abbreviated to stoich. For precise AFR calculations, the oxygen content of combustion air should be specified because of possible dilution by ambient water vapor, or enrichment by oxygen additions. The AFR is an important measure for anti-pollution and performance-tuning reasons. The lower the AFR, the "richer" the flame.'

This Manipulation can be done either as a Flash tune file (Alientech obd or ktag) or with a Piggy back unit such as a Dastek uni chip or for high Preformance Tuning with a stand alone ECU.
All are able to linearly optimize the fueling and timing to give the best economy SAVING YOU FUEL - however this can only be done if all the hardware such as:
- AIR MASS METERS
- LAMBDA SENSORS
- SPARK PLUGS
- FUEL LINES
- PRESSURES SENSORS
And also ensuring that all other aspects of your engine are in good healthy condition!
