I have the evo race CTS and I find stage 4 gets the best mileage unloaded. However, I wouldn't use that tune to tow. I wouldn't use any higher than stage 2 to be honest. You're gonna build a lot of heat towing.

thanks. truck pulls 10-20 k pounds, so you think 2 is best?
empty truck only gets 11.3 mpg. i also have 2008 f-250 that got 11, then i put sct tuner and cat/dpf delete and it went to 16 mpg. how much better do you think 350 will do with edge on 2?

Honestly, I couldn't say for sure as I don't tow that heavy. I'd be more concerned about controlling the heat, and stages 1&2 don't build too much heat like 3&4. You should try 1 then 2 and see how you like it.

I have the same chip and am always on 4 with the exception of when towing, then i have it on 2. But honestly i haven't gotten better then 13 MPG ever... i am wishing there was a way to get better with this chip but i don't think thats possible.

I run mine at level 2 as anything higher than that with the 4.10 gears feels like I am going to twist the driveshaft out of it.

I was just reading on edge's website that When towing with this tuner, it is recommended to be at stage 2 or lower.

The gear ratio will be listed on your window sticker from when you bought it, or on the door jamb sticker that has your VIN on it.
