You'll definitely have better luck in the heat with a solid cover rather than a soft one. I could definitely see the UV rays wearing out a soft one pretty quick. Bakflip also makes a fibreglass version of the G2 (aluminum) which might work better in the heat. I would send them an email and see what they recommend.

You aren't going to see much for MPG gain with any tonneau cover. These trucks are already designed to streamline air over the box. If anything you might see a 0.5 MPG gain but that would be the max....
