    Your not supposed to put e85 in the first place (out trucks arent made for flex fuel) I think you mean e10, and yes I notice better mileage without e10

    Shell gas is supposed to not have any ethanol in their gas. I run Sunoco and theirs supposedly has only 5 percent, I have pretty good luck with it usually get 19.5 or better mileage.I ran some local crap the one time and got around 17.5 on that garbage.

    Get a tonneau cover and an afe dry air filter and rip out the secondary air filter if you want to do better (4 x 2). On my first tank, I got 24.5 before the mods (w/tonneau) . My ultragauge is currently reading 28.5 after one 40 mile round trip to work after a tune up and mods.

    I'm looking at the ultragauge now and an new cold air system. I need to do more homework on the ultragauge and how hard they are to install and where to find the best one.

    What kind of cover did you get shoft sell or hard?

    No homework needed on the ultragage, it's a plug and play into the obdii, there is only one.
