So perhaps with the dual injection points Top Tier and Techron can do some work on the intake ?

If I understand correctly, the mpg savings from a given feature may only be used IF that system is enabled by default. If Ford were to make it something the driver could just turn off and stay off, they can't count the mpg gains in the book. I'm sure there are smaller details I'm missing, but I *think* that's the gist of it.

In all BMW cars you can turn off A/S system and it will stay off. And I bet BMW claims those savings with EPA. They talk about savings in all their promotional brochures making emphasis on A/S system. It is drivers decision, same like it is whether he/she will floor it on stop light. EPA numbers are anyway theoretical. My BMW gets 19/26 by EPA. In practice I get 21-22 in city and almost 30 on HWY. So go figure.

Hopefully it doesn't have the same ceramic turbo bearings like the 6.7L PS.

Well, I believe that best thing for that are good gas (Chevron will do), long drives and heavy foot.

That 3.0 V6 is coming from Europe, and it did not gain some tracking there. Probably because FORD is not synonym for luxury vehicle and V6 in Europe are found in luxury vehicles. On other hand, their diesel four bangers IMO were always above average on EU market.
