...First, "Congratulations" on your win, and second, will this be your first SG-product or are you already familiar with MPG-display devices?

Will be my first SG product, although I was already familiar with their product line. Looking forward to doing some testing on my Geo Metro and seeing how I can refine my techniques. I think I've done pretty good with it considering all of my techniques were done without any instrumentation assistance.

Ironically enough, my latest vehicle purchase was practically the same Ecoboost F150 as they drove cross country. Mine has a 3:55 limited slip gear as opposed to the 3:15 they had in their truck.

Congratulations on the truck and the scangauge! That truck an impressive piece of equipment. On our drive it was able to hold top gear without downshifting... right at the shift point of 45 mph, fully loaded to 7100+ lb (truck weigh station verified), into a 30 mph headwind, climbing the Rocky mountains. It gets excellent mileage when you're gentle with it, but will haul anything you want it to.

Oh, and it will "haul" when you want it to. I earned myself a slap from Wayne by testing that feature the day after the challenge was over. I had to.. just once!

Thanks! It is indeed a beast to pull with when needed. Pulls my 7500# loaded camper through the smoky mountains without requiring more than 1/2 throttle at the most.

We won't talk about mpg when towing though. Lol.

Those 0-60mph blasts are extremely addictive, I have to agree.

...it's not an addiction, it's simply rigorous inquisitive testing techniques ( )!
