Although I am not as gas senistive as many others, and I do realize this is a truck and that there really is not a way to maximize fuel efficiency, I am still going to do several things to help it along. One thing I did notice on the window sticker, apparently the F-150 has a 3.55 gear ratio, that should help minutely. I am going to put synthetic oil in her (I hear that helps with 1 or 2 mpg), of course I am getting a hard tonneau cover (I have like those regardless of the mpg), and I am probably going to add a CAI and dual exhaust. I was going to use a tuner, but just talking to you all on this thread makes it apparent that wont help much. If I do become a slave to the pump, I will just go buy a little beater and run that to the ground.
