Best tuner for 2015 V8

Anyone have thoughts on improving gas mileage in a V8 5.0L? Don't laugh... I was thinking a tuner, and new air intake. Cheapest upgrades for this purpose.

Tuner will void your warranty if they catch it...

Meh, I could see the upgrade for a little more horsepower, but really, how much is it going to improve the mileage ?

The mileage improvement is usually negated by the enjoyment of the new found ponies.

also most cold air intakes do flow more air and its better but it comes at a cost.. they don't filter out near the same microns as in small sand/dust can still get by the filter causing other problems down the road...

Honestly, it still puzzles me how anyone can buy a full size pick up and get too hung up on gas mileage, should have thought that out before you bought.

The old principles still apply.....easy on the gas, set the cruise, do your maintenance and enjoy the ride.
