Stock. But then you would loose that smile you've had since the weekend


A remap is all about smiles per gallon. Not miles per gallon.

Ian, what are you like you've only been modded 2 mins, anyway thought of 2 ways to improve your MPG;

Donate your cat back, intercooler and CAIS to a good cause
(me
) or................................

Take a couple of plugs out that usually slows things down a bit.

Nah - Couple of days after getting Mountune done I nipped to Silverstone. Boring roads on route so on the way back did a mpg check out of interest - 163 miles, 35.2mpg. There was an 11 mile stretch of 50mph limit on M1 though which would have helped. With that map it's dead easy to leave in top when cruising and just use the torque.
I'm sure the DS is similar.

I've done a few comparisons and found DSCI was very good on a run , aver was around the 34-36 mpg at 70mph.
definately avoid modB best was only 25mpg on the same run


ModC is very good too still achived 34mpg and lots of power when required.
I'm currently running STOC map which seems good also but I've not done a run yet.

I have noticed that on my normal commute the mpg has fallen by a few mpg but I think thats due to the colder temps now.

I've put Perf + on mine on Friday, haven't noticed any improvements in MPG from DSCi yet, although the Shell garages down here are all out of V Power, so I have to use the normal unleaded for time being, which my ST really drinks, is this normal?

Perf + really makes the engine note sing, and pops more than DSCI.

QUOTE(newtoallofthis @ 22 Nov 2009, 01:37 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>eh?

how can modB be worse on fuel than modC, when its supposed to be slower?

Modb was the 1st gen map from DS for fully modded cars and was more 'brutal'.
ModB+ and ModC are the most recent so I guess they've changed a lot of parameters now on these as they are much smoother in power delivery.
I'm sure DS would explain this in more detail.

I dont find much difference in MPG between Perf + and DSCi, I find you have to press more to get anything, which was weird after coming from DSCi, but it's ok now. Much easier to get traction to overtake with Pref+, DSCi you just wheelspin past them
