Any improvement in fuel efficiency?

I wish I knew... 

I put new, different spark plugs and the K&N air filter in at the same time, plus different tires than the last trip to this destination.

This super hot desert/high elevation mountain trip two years ago was with 2 people, we had 3 people this time so a lot more weight in the car.  Last trip I got about 37.5 mpg, this trip we got 40.9 mpg with A/C on 95%.

 

The car drove great and was quieter, this is an early build 2013 Job 1 FFH with 18" wheels/tires.  You have a 2015 FFE with all the new improvements so I don't know if this air filter would be worth the effort.

Sounds like some decent MPG improvement to me! Sure you can't say which individual change/upgrade is responsible for the the biggest improvement but the sum definitely seems to work well.

I have a K&N cold air intake on my Mustang GT for years. It is allowing better performance, but not better mileage. When I tune the engine for maximum performance and high octane It definitely roars when I stand on it. I am very pleased with my K&N setup. On my fusion I think I will stick with the stock filter.
