Warranty question

Hello everyone:
My boss bought a 2010 F350 last march to haul horses all over the country, but she was concerned that we were only getting about 7.4mpg. I ordered an edge programer because i was told they were good but now I'm worried about the warranty. The place were I bought it said that the dealership would not be able to tell if the truck was flashed as long as I flashed it back to stock. I was wondering if this is true? I don't want to void my warranty since the truck only has 20000 miles.
Thanks

JUST ADDING A TUNER without doing the deletes will not really gain you much in mpg...tuning your truck requires you to be a bit of a gear head or at least willing to learn and be involved in the truck and how it operates... if that is not the case,,, i would look twards an older model diesel that is not plagued with all of these govt mandated changes that have pretty much ruined diesels in general... IMO

Honestly I'm not a truck guy let alone a diesel guy but I'm willing to learn if the guys in this forum are willing to help me learn. I know I need a cold air intake but I don't know which one to get, the place were I bought the edge sold me a k&n that I'm returning. Thanks for the advice

you need to delete dpf for real mpg increase. i added afe cai with tuner before i deleted dpf and saw no real improvement in mpg. i then deleted dpf/cat and went up 4 mpg, but this will void warr and is not street legal. really dep. on if you are willing to pass up easy use of warr. or want mpg to get better.

Keep in mind, there is no tuner sanctioned by Ford, so running any tuner can potentially void the warranty. Since your hauling horses all across the country, if something breaks and goes belly up and you end up having to have it towed to the dealer. Having a DPF deleted or gutted is a good way to have the warranty voided. Unless you plan on hauling the DPF around with you and putting it back on when that happens.

Also, while towing, don't expect huge increases in mileage. Some people have reported very minor increases even no increases while towing where others have reported a decent jump, but not double.
