The full-color screen offers a gauge display to keep you absolutely informed about your newly tuned Chevrolet Silverado's engine, ensuring that its newfound power doesn't damage your system. With this unique feature you can:

Maximize Fuel Economy

Edge's Mileage Coach program is designed to help you achieve better fuel economy. When you're not racing, towing or taking advantage of your engine's newfound power, switch on the Coach to view information from various parameters that will give you an indication of how your driving habits affect your fuel economy and overall engine performance.

Monitor real-time gas usage, displayed in either gallons per hour or liters per 100 kilometers. Enter the current price of gas to determine the cost of your trip or your overall fuel costs.

Analogue gauge shows how your driving habits effect fuel economy

The Mileage Coach gauge indicates your overall engine performance and fuel economy. This analog gauge has three different colors to show where your driving and fuel economy are at a glance. If you are in the red, your current driving performance is poor. The green section in the middle of the gauge denotes good driving habits. The top portion will be a color of your choosing, and it indicates that you have reached optimal performance.

In addition to monitoring your driving performance, the Mileage Coach also offers tips to make you a more conscientious driver, thus enhancing your fuel economy by improving your driving skills.

Maintenance Manager

With Edge's free Maintenance Manager download, keeping track of your Chevrolet Silverado's maintenance schedule has never been easier. Simply create a list of the tasks you want to manage, such as changing your oil or air filter, then set alerts to remind you when those services are due. Customize your list of services, set the intervals you desire, and monitor your newly organized schedule with the easy-to-read, easy-to-navigate display.

Product was delivers quickly thank you etrailer. I was dissapointed however that u have to stop the vehicle and turn it off in order to swich performance programs. Happy with purchace. 25411


Is it true that you have to stop and turn off your vechicle to switch performance programs.

comment by: adam .H - 07/21/2013


Yes, you will have to stop and turn off the vehicle and follow the on-screen instructions when changing tunes. This device cannot tune on the fly. The new program has to be flashed onto the vehicle computer and the engine cannot be running when this process goes on.

How much actual gain will I get in HP, torque,

comment by: Chris B. - 09/17/2013


It is really hard to say. This system covers a wide range of makes and models, from Ford 6.2L to GMC 4.8L. The maximum possible horsepower gain will be different for each vehicle and engine configuration. Figures will be listed as: Up to XX HP and Up to XX Torque. Use our Vehicle Fitguide to find what the maximum possible gains will be. For example a 2012 GMC Sierra 4.8L could see up to 18HP and 17LB. FT. gains. A 2012 F-150 6.2L could see up to 26HP and 34 LB. FT. Actual gains are just about impossible to predict. The truck in Denver will see different gains than its twin in Death Valley. Climate and elevation will play a role. Further more, any pre-existing modifications will alter the gains. The maximum possible gains are calculated for stock vehicles with no aftermarket parts or any alterations. It is strictly based off the vehicle as it comes off the production line.

did this chip improve your MPGs at all ?

comment by: courtney - 07/07/2014



I have a 2007 silverado 1500 new body style with a 4.8L engine with CAI and Flow Pro exhaust. Will this programer still work on my truck with no issues

comment by: Vince - 07/27/2014


According to my contacts at Edge, this tuner is confirmed as a fit for your truck, and your cold air intake and exhaust would not cause a problem, unless you have removed any of your factory sensors.

  • Will The Edge Evolution Programmer # EP85150 Increase Gas Mileage on a Chevy Silverado
  • Using the Edge Evolution, # EP85150, or a similar programmer will give you an increase in overall fuel economy when used in the Fuel Economy mode.

  • Difference Between the Towing Mode on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe and Towing Mode on an Edge Programmer
  • According to Edge, when placed in towing mode, tuning strategies are optimized to provide power where it is needed most in order to move a load. This means more low RPM torque and changes in the shift points, among other changes as needed for air/fuel, to maximize towing ability of the vehicle. The factory push-button towing setting prevents the truck from going into overdrive and/or changes the shift points (shifts at a higher RPM). It does not make additional tuning changes to the...
