If it was me...I would not be happy with 17mpg with a 6cyl sorry guys,i dont care if its a truck or not..heck im seeing 17.9 with a V-8 in a half ton extended cab 4x4 with over 130,000 miles,Bone stock(no its not a Ford sorry to say that).....Now i would be looking into air intake upgrades that wont affect warrenty issues along with some kind of free flowing dual exhaust setup..gotta get that baby breathing better....imo that ecoboost should be producing much better numbers than 17-18 mpg's.....The Factory has definitly left room for imrpovement from my perspective.....Also a tuner is not a bad idea IF you intend on keeping the rig long term and do towing with it.it gives you tunable options,for your needs...which superseeds a custom tune by itself....once it is done your stuck with how the peramiters are setup.
