    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Default

    The fuel when kicking it's arse wikll suffer but when light throttling it will be more economical. I get 43mpg (bang on BC too and no different to standard economy wise actually) but I give it stick. What's the point of a remap if you ain't gonna make those ponies gallop?
