Hi everyone, thought I'd let you know the results of a little test I've just carried out.
I filled my car with a full tank of std Total diesel, then drove it for the next couple of weeks, NOT EXCEEDING 2K on the rev counter. (It drove me mad
I used cruise control when ever I could, including around town, but making sure the engine did not labour (>1k rpm). I was amazed at how often the car was operating in "over run" (if thats the correct term for when MPG shows 99.9)
The result I was amazed at, I normally average 32 - 34 MPG(checked on board computer with amount of fuel and distance and they seem to agree). Driving like captin Slow I gained an average of 44.9 MPG
Which enabled me to get 700 miles from a tank. This was mixture of A and B road and Motorway driving, so I think a fair test.
So it just shows what can be achieved with a remap of the right foot in sted of the engine.
Having said that I drive an Alfa because I like to drive, so my current MPG is at a more satisfying 33 MPG
(and I'm watching for cameras again
