Edge Juice Platinum, 05 F-250

Greetings everyone, new to the site, have really enjoyed the posts and seeing what everyone does to there trucks. I have a question for anyone out there that has installed the Edge Juice Platinum on there F-250. I recently installed it and it has improved my mileage from 13mpg's to 15mpg. But I question the accuracy of my readings because my distance to empty is way off. The other day on a long interstate drive it told me I had over 100 miles of diesel and I only had an 1/8th tank left, way off!!

I know that some people refer the mgp as a lie-o-meter, but it was accurate before I put in the Edge product.

The Edge basically "fools" the PCM into thinking certain parameters are different than they really are, thus causing the PCM to make adjustments which result in more available power. As far as the PCM knows, your engine is still stock and operating under stock parameters, so since the overhead is getting its info from the PCM, it is not seeing accurate information and thus, your fuel mileage will not be correct on that display...

The only way you are going to know your true fuel mileage readings is to hand calculate them.

So is the edge product a scam? Does it really improve gas mileage? It sure does improve power in the higher setting. Also, another question, what are the long term effects here? I'm fairly certain all that fast shifting can't be good on the ol'stock tranny.
