With the British government confirming that the proposed 3p per litre fuel duty increase will take place in August 2012 against a background of record high fuel prices, it’s a good opportunity for motorists to prepare themselves and their cars and take action to minimise the pain at the pumps.
But beyond ensuring that your car is regularly serviced, that the tyres are fully inflated and any roof racks and extra weight removed from the car, what can you do to improve your turbo diesel car’s fuel economy? Careful driving will help increase your car’s consumption, but once you’ve mastered this skill you’ll soon hit the limits of your car’s maximum fuel efficiency.
Which is where Superchips can help. Superchips ECU remaps for turbodiesel cars have been independently proven to improve fuel consumption by up to 7%, as well as providing a noticeable performance improvement. So how does Superchips achieve this blend of performance and fuel efficiency?
Our technicians fine tune the settings in the car’s engine management system, removing any in-built compromises and restrictions, which allows turbo diesel engines to work more effectively. This is particularly noticeable in the lower part of the rev range, where a Superchips remapped turbo diesel engine will produce noticeable more torque (or ‘pull’) at lower engine speeds compared to the factory version, enabling swift progress without the need for higher revs. This allows drivers to ‘short shift’ to a taller gear at lower engine speeds than was previously possible, again helping to reduce fuel consumption.
Superchips ECU remaps are the affordable way to improve your car’s fuel consumption and maximise your miles per gallon. They are available for the vast majority of turbo diesel cars, vans and light trucks.
