We had our 2.0 ltr JTD remapped and the first thing we noticed was that the exhaust smelt cleaner. Then I took the van out and noticed the power increase.Over 2,400 miles it returned 32 mpg as opposed to 28mpg before the remap.
My thoughts-the cleaner exhaust smell leads me to believe that fuel is now being burnt more efficiently and less is just 'passing through'. Having more power means being able to cruise in higher gear for longer. I try to keep revs around 2,500-3,000 and use the gears to achieve this. I don't use the increase in power to outdrag others from lights etc
We are extremely pleased with the results.
