2004 F350 Tow questions

OK I just put on The Edge with Juice, AFE Intake, and I will be putting on the Banks Monster single 4" in the next day or two. Is there any thing else I could do to help with fuel mileage? I am getting ready to move to Alaska from florida and will be towing my Jeep the whole 4600 miles so any advice would be great.

Have you heard of the SCT Xcalibrator?? Clean fuel filters and fresh oil will help. How much weight are you towing?

Clean your egr before the drive if you want. Zoodad will kick your highway milage up.

Speed, tire pressures, a bed cap, etc, can all make a difference in milage.

Yeah I will be running 55-60mph for the most part. Not in a hurry to get there. I just put a Leer Truck topper on a few weeks ago. I am thinking about adding the zoodad this weekend. I see that most people are saying they really seen a diff.

sct xcal is gonna be a bit better for your transmission versus the edge juice platinum....depending on what level you run. I got great mileage on level 1.
