The remapping of a vehicle with a focus on economy entails optimizing engine torque distribution, resulting in reduced accelerator input during cruising, while carrying a load or navigating gradients. The increased torque availability also allows for a more comfortable operation at lower speeds and reduces the frequency of gear changes. Adopting a driving style that maximizes the benefits of the enhanced torque can result in substantial fuel savings, particularly in turbo-diesel engines, with a potential improvement of up to 20%.
✓ Up to 20% savings on the cost of fuel
✓ No mechanical modifications
✓ Possible return on investment within 6 months or less
Our Top Fuel Saving Tips
1. Slow Down
One of the best ways to save fuel is to simply reduce your speed.
2. Careful Braking
Every time you brake, you convert fuel that you have paid for into heat!
Plan ahead, watch for traffic; choose the best route, not always the shortest.
4. Use Gravity
On a modern vehicle it uses no fuel when your foot is off the accelerator, so take
advantage of downhill runs, or approaching a junction; it’s completely free motoring!
5. Accelerate With Care
Accelerate smoothly and gently, maintain a constant speed, and keep gear changes to a minimum.
6. Top Gear
Get into top gear as soon as possible, without labouring the engine as each gear down can cost up to 20% fuel.
7. Switch The Aircon Off
Up to 10% fuel saving
8. Keep It Serviced
Under-inflated tyres are one of the most commonly ignored causes of poor MPG, consumables such as a dirty air filter
restricts the flow of air into the engine, which harms performance and economy, it’s also important to use quality oil.
9. Have A Remap
With a diesel-engined vehicle, you can significantly improve fuel consumption by having a remap.
Most turbo-diesel vehicles can expect to see a 5-15% reduction in fuel consumption through the remap when combined with the above recommendations. To maximize these savings, a change in driving style to take advantage of the increased torque and improved drivability is recommended. It is important to note that excessive use of the added power for acceleration or higher speeds may result in minimal or no fuel savings, though a more enjoyable driving experience may be gained.
