    confused HELLO from CARDIFF

    Good Morning All,
    I've been registered for quite some time but really never felt the need to seek expert advise -- I'm just a straight-forward user of a most adaptable car.
    Now, like [almost?] everyone else, I'm baulking at the cost of fuel [I've got the 1.9cdti 150 motor, so I'm really p----d off about the ridiculous premium cost of diesel] so I'm going to look through the forums for info on engine re-mapping -- for better economy, not performance -- and to decide if the cost is worth it for my ~10k miles pa.

    Bye for now,

    Thanks guys for your welcome.
    Since I posted, I've spent the past hour searching through various forums on remaps, etc.
    It seems that all the posters are intersted in is getting more power out of their motors [and at what cost??].
    As I said, I'm just a regular[but not snail-like] driver looking for better mpg.
    It seems that all systems/boxes/remaps/whatever offer to give more oomph but very little/if any extra mpg.

    It seems I'll just have to fit a helium ballon to my right foot . . . . . . unless you know better??
