edge mileage max

looking at the edge mileage max, they claim 7% increase in fuel mileage and 25 hp if any one is running this set up just wondering if see what they claim. and if u have any problem with it.

I dont belive anything on advertised mileage gains. It is all relevant on your right foot. Im willing to bet I can get better mileage with my DP on the 120R setting than the Edge, if I drive nice.

i agree that the higher hp tunes get better mpg when u keep your foot out of it but my truck can't handle a 120hp tune yet, and if it could i wouldn't be able to just cruise. as soon as i get some numbers on it i will repost

i went on short trip and before i left i filled it up drove 80 miles when i got there i filled up again and cramed as much fuel as i could in there 3.3 gallons witch comes out to 24 mpg witch seams realy high i think i need to go on a longer road trip. and get more acurate numbers

i haven't gone on a long distance trip since i bought it so i don't have any good mpg results but i should after the up comeing weekend but if u read my last post it has my short trip results. as for around town i live in the suburbs of chicago so i sit in trafic a lot 8 miles some times takes 45min. so it is always crapy. i def. noticed the extra 25hp makes passing and merging a whole lot easier

i have real mpg numbers. i went for a 350 mile trip and improved my mileage from 18 mpg to 19 mpg not bad but i still have some speculations for a couple of reason when i got 18 it was with the windows down and outside temp of 85 degrees when i got 19 it was with the windows up and outside temp of 60 degrees so was it the box or just the condition.

I went with the Banks power and so far i have gained about 6 MPG which leaves me around 23-24. Plus the extra power is awesome
