Will have some soon! On my way to get it now. About an hour away from the dealership, stripped my 150 and getting the best mileage I ever had, bullcrap! This is after a reset and about 120 miles of driving same speed 70mph with a few stops and starts and going through a couple small towns at 25.

Awesome. I know you are excited. And are you saying once you took the mods off you got better fuel mileage?

Oh for sure, only got 14 or so, but I only got about 16 or 17 before I put them on! Same gas, same roads! I have a 2010 5.4l

I lost about 2 with my 24 inch rims. Those are averages, after a reset down the road I got 16 peak with the 24s at 70mph.

Oh wow. Now since you see the difference, will it hesitate you in doing any mods to your new truck?
