    :idea: There is another way of thinking about this...

    take the O/P original wording:-

    We offer diesel economy remaps on most vehicles with an average 15% saving.

    ...also take the fact that he drives to you to do the installation... saving you fuel... now with a little maths, it could be that you are saved 15% by not having to drive 'cross country ... which in turn means all actual savings you encounter whilst driving your modified vehicle are a bonus :rolleyes:

    I still believe though, I am a believer who dares to believe that a remap can gain you fuel savings, just a damned shame I dont have a suitable test vehicle at the moment..... now where's my little white jacket, a spanner and notepad.... time to test the free remap theory by scientific methods of brim to brim fill up :rolleyes:

    Pleased that you asked :D its a way of increasing the engine output, and the bonus is you can save up to 15% on fuel

    While we're at it, what about atomic fusion? With Harwell's ZETA, Culham's JET, MAST and the international ITER projects the future is in the doughnut. Or possibly the Spherical Tokamak, with fries.

    Why Flat or Round? It's the doughnut that is our future.

    Pass me the cigar-shaped object. And matches :)

    I had my Tom-Tom re-mapped. Showed me a quicker way home and saved 21.5% in fuel. :p

    WOW - brim-to-brim fillups. I doubt that ANYONE has ever thought of that before :roll:

    If you then divide the mileage since the last brim fill-up by the fuel you have used. It would (possibly) give you the mpg your car has done.

    Marvellous..!!

    no need!! don't the displays on modern mercedes show mpg?? it ought to be easy to do a before and after just by the dash. i suggest sitting at 70mph for 10 miles od the same motorway, same direction, same conditions.

    The Arabs would never allow it, they know how their oil is buttered.... they could even have gone so far to have all the schooling altered so that Engineers were taught that 15% fuel savings were not possible..... damned clever :rolleyes:

    It will probably be Israel who invents Fusion, only that way will the kings of the North (Russia), Arabia and the East (China) attack as the pre-cursor to Armageddon..... Just think, over night, the economies of Russia and Arabia will collapse and China wont want the technology falling into foreign hands :confused:

    cold, compact, safe and cheap fusion will change the world as we know it, jim. do not hold your breath though, it is the modern alchemy.

    Now, that made me laugh.:D:D

    Although, did anyone authorise the remapping of the forum? Blobcat, how much does it cost and have you seen any real savings on internets?? Did anyone fill the forum to the brim and do a full typing test to see if it helped? I think we need a proper scientific analysis and not all these vague claims as Peter has stated above. :evil::evil:
