How big and how long does it take to empty? Just wondering as I've not seen anything of the much promised tank test to verify the mythical properties of one of them there re-maps. :lol:
Or has this been abandoned now that SAM/UNIT and master tuner Steve are best (coffee) drinking buddies? :confused:

Judging by previous claims they'll be producing it now and have probably got more than they can cope with? :D

I was asking how many miles you use to get from a tank before the remap. So you have answered my question.

Have you not seen any improvement in the MPG figure then?

Just back from St. Ives, a 526 mile round trip. Trip was showing ave 43mpg and 1.8gal remaining. Filled up with 56ltr (12.3gal) so brim to brim ave 43mpg!! Not too bad a good mix of motorway, fast A roads and the inevitable hold-ups :)

Well if i wanted to, i could take it right down to zero, its showing 67 mile left, thats at 56.3 mpg, (just come of mtr way), so its is far better then it was but not as good as i expected!!

So am i pleased, yes, would i have it done again, yes,

Car runs better and is slightly up on mpg,

Need a good run in it now, as pete above would be good!!

You don't have to run it dry, it's OK to fill up now. :lol:

Has either of you got near the promised average 15% increase?

In a nutshell........No!

Ahhh, so who's eating your cake then? I guess AP will be pleased that he won't have to eat his hat though even if he's been spotted with a pie on his head. :lol:

But the thing is that once Cole stops doing wheelies and he starts to drive it as it used to be, then he would see an increase
