2011 FX4 Ecoboost super crew 3.73 gears stock 18" wheels.
do you think the tune helped mileage? Or hp/torque?

It sure didn't hurt the mpg's. HP/Torque?...you have no idea...it's like a totally different vehicle, pulls like a rabid dog. I love it. I could probably get better average mpg's if I didn't enjoy the power so much.

Coming back from a 1000km trip last winter, my DTE read the max- 999km on my 136 liter tank and stayed there for 80 kms before it started going down. Definitely a design flaw! Total Kms on the trip leading up to that tank were 1,080 kms, and that included multiple starts and short trips in -25c in northern Quebec.

Yes, so I drove like an old man. Don't care.

Here are mine:
512 miles on 31.75 gallons
538 miles on 32.44 gallons

both on the highway on Interstate trips during the first 3,000 miles in winter. I usually fill up sooner than that.

Not quite full here. I have seen up to 575 miles.



Here is my best 30 minute history:



And my overall MPG is going up from the 20.1 shown above:



I am now at 21.5 MPG for the past ~4800 miles.
