    Default ECU reset

    Hi guys,

    I know that the vec c's have very clever little ECU's, which take a little while to adjust to new fuel/conditions etc.

    I normally use Tesco 99 super unleaded, but am now using Shel V-Power on a regular basis.

    I waas wondering is it worth resetting the ECU so it can adjust quicker to the new fuel type or doest it ajust pretty quick. IE after 1/2 a tank or so?

    Anyone in the know?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    To be honest , you won't notice a huge difference between Vpower and tesco 99 ron..

    1/2 a tank is plenty to get it to change, but if you haven't noticed a difference it's because they are very nearly the same

    Thanks mate,

    knew theres not much between them, was just wondering how long it'll take the ECU to adjust. as i had to put some *gulp* 95 RON petrol (God forgive me) in the other day! We had a bit of a super unleaded shortage for a few days around here and it doesnt take me long to get through 1/2 a tank, so i had no choice.

    I waas almost crying atthe pumps. LOL.

    Thanks for the info m8 i always suspected as much.
