The 737 Max will have better fuel economy than the company had promised, Boeing said Tuesday.

The company said detailed engineering studies of the plane’s final configuration show the plane’s fuel consumption will be 14 percent better than the best present single-aisle airliner in its size range. Boeing had predicted a 13 percent increase in fuel efficiency.
