Fuel Economy Remaps

Saving Fuel With an Economy Remap?

When we remap a vehicle, especially when fuel saving is the priority we focus on improving the low end torque in particular and widening the power-band as far as we can.

This increase in low end torque will mean less throttle pedal input is required to maintain cruising speeds, when fully laden or when on a gradient. It will also mean that the vehicle will be more comfortable in higher gears at slower speeds as well requiring fewer gear changes overall.

If you combine these factors with adjusting your driving style to make the most of the extra low end torque you will see an improvement in fuel consumption. This is most effective on turbo-diesel engines where the savings could be as much as 20%!

WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY MODIFY IN MY VEHICLE?

We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, we just modify the operating parameters in the ECU’s program or ‘map’. In many cases the map stored on the ECU’s processor can be accessed via the on-board diagnostics port (OBD) in the vehicle, normally found under the dashboard. In some newer models the ECU will have to be removed from the vehicle and the casing opened, our technicians will then use specialist tools to read the original map straight from the processing chip.

The technician will then upload the original map to our map writing team who will adjust the parameters to maximise the performance, fuel economy or a clever blend of both. Depending on the vehicle and ECU type the remapping process can take under an hour and if at any time you wish to return your vehicles ECU to its original default settings, this can be done easily and free of charge as we always keep a copy of the original software as a backup.

IS AN ECU REMAP LEGAL?

YES – There is nothing illegal about remapping an ECU on an engine. Although you should inform your insurance company of any alterations made to the vehicle.

HOW DO I BOOK A REMAP?

Fleet Remaps

We’re certain that your bottom-line is the key figure for your business and the simple fact is that the fuel price increase of over 20% in the last year has had a catastrophic impact on many companies. However, a number of progressive thinking business owners have taken advantage of the situation by using our Fleet Remapping service to drive down their fuel costs by up to 15%*, vastly improving their competitive position and massively increasing their profitability. It doesn’t matter what type of business you own or run, we can guarantee that within days your business will be performing better with our Fleet Remapping solution.

Fleet Speed Limiting

As well as saving fuel we can also limit most vehicles to specific speeds. This helps your company to maintain a good reputation for good driving and not speeding, whilst improving your fuel economy also. Did you know commercial vehicles and cars are most efficient at 56mph?.. Benefits of RPM & Maximum Speed Limiters include:

  • Prevents the driver from cruising at high speeds saving fuel.
  • Prevents the driver from hard driving, typically limited to 3,000rpm, saving fuel.
  • Increases engine longevity due to more sedate driving.
  • Can increase service times for variable service schedules.
  • Reduces overall CO2 output.
  • Saves Money.

Power Remaps

BENEFITS OF ECU REMAPPING & Power Remaps.

ECU remapping will not only improve the engines power and torque figures, it will also sharpen the throttle response and widen the power-band. This will make the power delivery a lot more linear, which in turn will make the vehicle feel a lot livelier to drive and the engine more flexible. Frequently, the vehicles power output is restricted by the manufacturer for no other reason than to ensure that the vehicle fits into a class to suit fleet buyers. As a driving enthusiast, you do not need or want such restrictions placed upon your vehicles ECU and its performance therefore you can benefit from the hidden power and torque locked away within your engine management system.The other main benefit of power remaps will be a reduction in fuel consumption. With the extra torque especially at the bottom of the rev range you will see a fuel saving, as it will require less throttle input to maintain motorway speeds, you can drive in a higher gear at a slower speed as well as helping significantly when fully laden, towing or on gradients and even in start stop traffic.

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR TURBOCHARGED DIESEL ENGINES

Many see the modern crop of Turbocharged diesels as the future of road car tuning. These engines offer fantastic potential for reliable low cost tuning without removing any of the appeal of buying and running a turbo diesel powered vehicle, such as economy, reliability and longevity.

After your ECU upgrade to your turbocharged diesel engine, you will enjoy:

  • Increased horsepower
  • Increased torque
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Safer overtaking

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR TURBOCHARGED PETROL ENGINES

Turbocharged petrol engines have always been regarded as the sports flagship engine for good reason. They boast far higher power & torque figures than a non-turbocharged power-plant with similar displacement and are usually fitted to the manufacturer’s flagship models. They are also ideal candidates for remapping as the ECU also controls the waste-gate (turbo boost pressure control).

After your ECU upgrade to your turbocharged petrol engine, you will enjoy:

  • Increased horsepower
  • Increased torque
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Safer overtaking

Improvements in fuel consumption on petrol engine vehicles are smaller and nothing like that achieved by diesel vehicles.

ECU REMAPPING BENEFITS FOR NON-TURBOCHARGED PETROL ENGINES

The normally aspirated petrol engine, whilst not being the easiest of engines to tune, can still benefit from a 8-15% power increase with added torque by careful reprogramming of various engine parameters within the map. Parameters such as the fuel and ignition curves can be fine-tuned to give better power & torque output. On some engines the camshaft timing can also be tuned within the map, giving additional improvements.

In many cases, ‘after market’ tuning items such as freer flowing exhausts, high flow air filters and re-profiled camshafts can only be fully utilised by the engine once the necessary adjustments have been made within the ECU. Careful recalibration of the correct maps can unlock the potential of your new engine parts. Further power gains may also be available when a higher octane fuel is used, allowing for more ignition timing.

IMPORANT! 

Performance remapping is different to economy remapping and fleet remapping. The map will not damage your vehicle  however, your engine may be damaged due to reckless driving and extreme driving due to power increases. Swansea Tyres DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY for any engine damage due to your driving habits. All remapped vehicles are road tested before you drive away and you should be aware that on high mileage or vehicles with existing problems, a remap (when driven hard) can make these problems worse or even destroy your engine!
