    Post Remapping vs. Fuel consumption

    Hello all,
    As some of you may know i've recently become the owner of an '04 plate 1.9 CDTi 120 Vectra.

    I was just wondering what people would expect the fuel consumption change to be like after having it remapped or adding a tuning box (If thats right, the cheaper option?!)

    Im currently getting 38ish mpg on the computer - But thats town driving only for the last 100 miles or so.

    And am hoping this might improve after the service which was done today.

    Any views gratefully recieved.

    Joe.

    Hello, I have a 1.9 CDTi (150). Recently BSR remapped and KN panel filter. One months driving of similar driving to that of before modifications added and fuel consumption to all intense purposes completely the same. Performance and smoothness are both greater with remap. Over past 2 years my average MPG is 47. Not much town driving in that but do spend a lot of my time in motorway queues

    Second that, my remapped 1.9 150 was identically poor on fuel consumption. Used to average 39 before the remap, and 39 after...

    SOOOOO much better to drive though

    I tried a box & now have the BSR remap & haven't seen much difference in consumption with either, although a box does throw the trip computer out so it allways looked like it was doing well. I average about 47 on mixed motoring but have had 53 over 500 miles with mainly motorway use.
