MPG increase with Edge Juice

was seeing 13.9-14.1 over first 2K mi and it immediately jumped to 14.3-14.5 on setting #2. Could go higher - haven't had it on for long. Just amazing how truck from factory seems to be stuck in place when you push accelerator. You really needed to mash it to floor to get the truck to get out of it's own way. Little programming frees everything up and it's far more responsive even with a very conservative tune.

If the regen is different/longer due to the programming maybe but I think I'll still experience a 2-4 mpg gain would be my bet even net of regen.

No, it's the machine but I figure the improvement on a relative basis exists either way. Also, after driving it it seems like there should be an improvement as it just doesnt' seem to struggle as much to get going. I will do a hand calc soon to confirm.

I think your gona be shocked when you hand calculate it. The nick name for that thing is the lie-o-meter. Mine will say im getting 24 but its not anywhere near close to that. Plus the money your saving in fuel is gona be spent a few times over when you have to replace the dpf at 20k miles. Since you already have the edge you should get a dpf-r module to remove the dpf

I agree, especially if you pull. With my big 40' my 6.4 will regen every 45 min. and they last up to and hour resulting in milage as low as 3mpg.. All that is about to change, got me a dpf delete set up on the way! Just curious FX4STROKER what the details are on your '08 blowing up????

Could very well be and I could lose it all upon regen. That said, it does seem to move out better with less strain and hold speed at lower RPM both of which typically mean better mpg. But I hear ya. Also, I'm only running it on the 2nd setting which is pretty conservative. Would love to get rid of the DPF but since I've only got 2500 miles, I want to try and enjoy the benefits of the warranty protection a little bit longer.
