Yeap... I've got the simple Edge Comp without all the toyz (personally think they are a PITA!) But I just run it wide open and drive like a normal human set my cruise for a normal 55-65 MPH speed limits here locally... If I make it down south to the interstate where there is 75 MPH I hang to the trucker lane at 65 MPH (Trucker speed limit in Idaho)
Also try to drive like you got no brake. Seriously! My brake pads are 162K miles original pads from factory (yes I've got a exhuast brake too). But I keep a good long following distance and try to coast to stops. Accelerate from stop gently and build to my set speed quickly and set my cruise were I can and it safe to do such. Reason behind this because all you brakes are doing is converting your energy of motion into heat on the rotors/drums. Why waste the engery let it take you to your stop.
Like my last fall trip to Stanley, ID I made 25.3 MPG... Take notice I avoided the interstates and took back roads where speed limit is much lower and could gain from the mellow speeds...
153,549 - 153,197 = 352 Miles / 13.915 Gallons = 25.29 MPG (Copied from my fuel logbook)
Also took notice to your air filter selection... Get a BHAF... Much cheaper don't require maintenance... My filter is 6 years old 106K miles and the filter minder still not moving. Yes my filter minder works too because I test it every maintenance period for finction. In my video I've got a outerwears but no longer... It wore holes in it... I yanked it off and keep going with the filter though... Also keep in mind I'm offroad 70% of the time here in Idaho the only paved road is the highway all other roads are DIRT!
As you can see I don't believe in spending big money on stuff but when the cheap stuff works just as good as the big boys stuff does...
