Just deleted truck

So I just got my truck deleted with a 4" turbo back exhaust and a bullydog programmer. Just wondering if anybody has any info for me. My truck wont read boost air/fuel ratio or intake temperature. Also my fuel mileage seems to have gotten worst. Pre delete and tune it was running around 15L/100km now it runs around 20L/100km driving nice. Not sure if it makes a difference but it has been -42C here for the past couple days. Any info would be great as to whether something is wrong or not.

Throw the bullydog in the trash and go EFI from a good tuner.

Winter fuel blends always hurt fuel economy.

Is it normal though for boost intake temp air/fuel ratio all to not have any readings at all though. Wouldn't that affect fuel mileage if it's not reading any air coming into the truck? Sorry I have very little knowledge on this kind of thing.

Very little knowledge.............. yet when an excellet suggestion is given (get rid of the BullyDog) you immediately trash the idea.

How is that trashing the idea all I said was after spending 1400 on the bullydog I cant afford to just throw it out and get another one. I would like any input that could help with why the programmer doesnt seem to be reading anything with the intake or why fuel mileage went to heck. If I offended anyone wasn't my intention.

I honestly had no idea you could delete a truck with a bullydog prgrammer. I know the bullydog and H&S look to be the same unit. Do you just install the software into the Bullydog?
