Thanks for the update. I would be interested to see if these numbers stay the same after you get your foot into it some more... LOL!

great post and thanks for sharing. Looking forward to your updates.

How large is your tank? I get 404 (computer says so anyway) out of mine and I have a 2009 with 24 gallon tank.

12.5 MPG was your average on the older model 4.7L; 15.1 sounds like what I get now on my newer model 4.7L... hmmmm

Let us know.

Of course the numbers are going to change if my foot is in it. I dont drive like that so I doubt I will have any worse numbers.

I have a 26 Gallon tank 6" suspension lift and 35's.

I went from 12.5 to 15.0 average city/highway driving.

I have put three tanks through the truck since installing the flashpaq and range from 330-340 miles before having to fill up again. Well worth the 340$

No Problemo!

I have a hunting trip coming up in November and will be switching to the 91 octane tune for the mountain driving/popup camper towing! I can't wait

Thanks!

No, a shop installed the lift. The only problems that is very common is the front shock bolts breaking. I had it happen once.

Yes, the superchips mileage, tire size, and transmission selections that I made when installing the program is in correlation to my engine mods.

I have put around 6 tanks of gas through the truck since installing the superchip and every tank im averaging around 330-350 miles per tank.
