ask them if the truck is programmed to run "rich" for a certain amount of miles for a better break in and is that why the mpg reports for the ecoboost aren't very good? If this is true at how many miles on the odometer will the pcm revert back to "normal" mode?

Tim, take a look at the tire and loading sticker on the door frame and see what it says....maybe even snap a pic if you get the chance. I'm curious to see what the numbers are for it after the infamous payload thread from a year or so ago in the 2009+ F-150 forum.
Also, ask if they have any plans to offer the EcoBoost in a regular cab shortbed.....4x4 or 4x2.
And lastly, if you would, ask them if they plan to expand the availability of the 4:10 gearing with the EcoBoost beyond the FX-4.
