First any mpg increases you may get will be so minimal it is not worth factoring into getting or not getting a tonneau cover and if so, which style. I would think if you are going to get a tonneau cover, you would want one that locks and is hard, otherwise you defeat part of the reason to have one... security. As to which style, you have to evaluate how you use or plan to use your bed, which will dictate what works best for your needs. The fiberglass hard covers look very nice, are secure but I did not get one because they tend to limit cargo height to the height of the bed, unless you are willing to ride with it partially up, which I am not. I went with the folding style (4-folds) Bakflip F1. I liked the versatility of the folding style, it locks (as long as you have a locking tailgate), is leak proof, very durable and well made. There are a number of threads on this forum that discuss pros and cons of different styles brands etc. They may help you to decide. Hope this helps.
