I have a 97 suburban but with gas climbing Its killing me. I love my truck but if I cant find some solution I fear I may have to sell it. So I was wondering if there are any reliable chips that will boost my MPG.

Keep in mind that the recovery cost of a couple hundred bucks for a chip tune will take a long time to pay off if you get 1-3 miles better MPG, and 1-3 is probably the absolute top end of mpg gains...most likely less then 2mpg...
If GM could wrench more MPG out of a V8 they would have been all over it....(GM is not in cahoots with the oil companies no matter what you have heard, its not good business)

I have to disagree they may not be directly funded by oil but they are partially government owned and the government loves oil thats why even though barrel prices are down pump prices are up. Its not good business its great business.
I don't really need a chip I just want better mpg without having to tear things off or out of my burban.
In case you haven't noticed the current gov't hates oil. They essentially shut down the Gulf and extended bans on Atlantic & Pacific coasts. They even defied a Federal judge's orders to start permitting again.
At last check, the price per bbl was $109. Ref here. When Barry was sworn in, it was $41/bbl. Ref here.
And the oil companies still have the 100 mpg carb locked up.
