    Cool Sounds like BS

    This sounds like BS to get around the EPA.
    Obviously a total track car tune will get less gas mileage.
    This way they don't get a gas guzzler tax and you have to pay extra for something they could have given you with the car just as easily originally.
    As the corporate fleet averages go up with time, I expect to see more of this on performance vehicles.
    Next thing you know, the gas prices go up and they'll be selling a "green key" for better mileage.

    “From an engine management standpoint, we’ve done just about everything possible to give TracKey users a full race car experience,” explains Jeff Seaman, Mustang powertrain engineer. “It’s not for use on the street – for example, the deceleration is set up to preserve the brakes, and the throttle response is very aggressive. A skilled driver on a closed course will really appreciate the benefits.”
    As part of the TracKey software package, Ford engineers also devised a two-stage launch control feature similar to that used on the Cobra Jet race car. Using a combination of steering wheel buttons, drivers can set the tach needle to a desired launch rpm. Floor the throttle and the engine will rev to the preset rpm until the clutch is released, helping aid acceleration and vehicle control from a standing start.
