    Hiya. I've got a Fiat Ducato Milano that was struggling up hills, especially when full of bikes! I had the ecu remapped and now it's got loads more power but doesn't use anymore fuel, less even. Not sure what they do, some sorta computer reprogramming, it's all foreign to me, but I just know that I can get up hills with no probs now, hee. I took it to a place called Chipwizards, near Rochdale, close to Manchester. :BigGrin:

    I am working for a company in Purfleet and they fill their cars up in a truck yard!
    The guy charges 87p per litre for diesel!
    A lot of truck companies will sell you cheaper diesel if you go in the yard and ask!
    Its worth talking to a few truck drivers when your out and about!
    They always know where to go!

    I don't think so!

    I don't think that the Transport Office would be very happy at folks driving into their yard and wasting their time just to save a couple of quid and for them to make pence!:Eeek:
