Line-x bed liner, trifold aluminum tonneau, and latest Ford flash of the PCM were done yesterday.

I need to put some miles on to see if the mileage increases like many who have this new tune flashed to their trucks have seen.

Still love the truck!

1028mi on the clock. Most folks report mileage really starting to increase around 3-4000mi.

My truck picked up a solid 1 mpg with the soft tonneau cover I installed on my truck.

Nice! This thing is basically like three sheets of aluminum that mount flush over the bed. The tracks that the cover locks into even have water drain pipes to keep the bed as dry as possible! Pretty slick cover, IMO.

Looking forward to some additional MPG due to the cover and the updated tune!

Maybe it's a Ford thing, but my car took 5K+ miles to start improving the mileage

Yeah... I've read in lots of places that the ecoboost takes a few thousand miles to "break in" and start to reap better MPG.

It comes into boost quick now, so there is a spike at the beginning of the graph. Peak gains on this pull were 69 RWHP and 88 RWTQ. Notice though up top, gains are much more. I left the cursor on the graph so you can see the gains. Around 104 RWHP / 114 RWTQ.





Thank you

At a gas station posting for a fill up, when some old guy is like "hey is that yer echo-boost?" I answer yep. "how you like it?" Me: i love the truck. Him: does it get the great mileage they say? Me: not until you put a few thousand miles on it. if you're looking for a truck, go drive everything you think you want, then go drive one of these. You won't look back.
