I believe the latest distance factor between cars is the 2 second rule. Works at any speed. For larger vehicles or bad road conditions you add 1 or 2 seconds per factor. Paul

Ran into a couple of Ford F-450 RVers last week and they both had good this to say about the SCT Economizer. Both getting about 5 MPG better.
Internet reviews seem pretty good.
Anyone know what FORD engine is in the 2006 Sunseeker 2600?

Agree. Manufacturer claims "up to" a 10% increase in MPG. 60% to 70% increase won't happen.

Do toppers on the bed of the truck help at all with gas mileage when pulling your camper?
