The hypermiller gurus say set to 0 degree toe in for best mpg, but I don't agree. The factree +value toe in settings are there for a reason. The suspension components have enough flex at highway speed that with positive toe in parked, you have 0 toe in at highway speed. Setting your car to 0 toe in, leads to Toe Out at 70 mph highway speeds and during braking which is unsafe. Toe out makes for very twitchy and unpredictable speed sensitive steering at 70 mph and is unsafe in my opinion. If you never driver your car over 45 mph, then 0 degrees toe in may work for you and save a percent or two in gas mileage.
