How will remapping effect my MPG?
Specific figures are impossible to estimate, as no two engines or driving styles are the same. Usually petrol engines do not expect any MPG gain from remapping alhtough we have had feed back to say otherwise.
On the flip side diesel and turbo diesel vehicles, if driven gently with economy in mind – can see upto 20%+ improvement in MPG following our fine tuning*.
No amount of tuning will improve economy in vehicles that are driven hard, petrol or diesel.
What can I do to save fuel
Factors such as incorrect tyre pressure and fitted roof storage products can adversely effect fuel consumption. So its worth checking tyre pressures regularly especially in Winter because temperature can effect the pressure. Remove any un-needed items from your car, it all add up to weight and that will burn extra fuel.
Weather conditions can adversly effect MPG. When you use more power consumers such as like air-con, heated screens and seats. Not forgetting heaters and even lights and wipers all use energy. Everything that is run off your engine uses your fuel, keep that in mind if you want to save fuel becuase it all adds up.
Avoiding short runs from a cold engine is probably the biggest saver. When any engine is cold they are not very efficient. Engines need more fuel to run when cold so if you must, drive gently until it reaches temperature. Turning off your in car heaters can help to reduce engine warm up times on a cold day, but use your own judgement on that one.
We wouldn’t recommend purchasing premium diesel fuel. We think its a false economy as opposed to normal B6 branded or supermarket fuels. We found Premium Diesel hardly makes any difference to fuel economy based on our own tests.
