The only reason I didn't rate this product as excellent across the board is the fuel mileage. On my 2010 F-350 dually I was getting 10.8 mpg on the interstate with cruise set on 70 mph. I was expecting up to a 6mpg as advertised. On my most recent trip of 140 miles I only got 12.3 mpg. Now when you back down to 55 mph and reset the mpg display on the dash you can see mpg's up to 17, but you can't drive 55 on the interstate or your dead meat! Power on the other hand is just fine. I pull a 30 foot gooseneck and haul farm tractors (we are a Mahindra dealer) and the first tractor I delivered was without the programmer and I was disappointed in the performance of my new truck. I previously had an 02 Chevy Duramax with a Hypertech programmer in it and it would walk off and leave the Ford. I ordered the hyperteck Max Energy programmer and installed it and delivered a 45 horse cab tractor. The difference was night and day. I am no longer disappointed in the Ford. Makes you wonder why the don't do this at the facory?
