Getting the best out of vehicle fuel efficiency

Getting the best out of vehicle fuel efficiency
Fuel efficiency vehicle engine

According to the RAC, during 2019 the UK’s average new car fuel efficiency and consumption was measured at 49.2 miles-per-gallon for petrol engines, at 5.7 litres per 100km and 55.4 miles-per-gallon for diesel engines at 5.1 litres per 100km. An increase of 45% for petrol vehicles and 38% increase for diesel vehicles since an earlier review in 1997.

Whilst these figures demonstrate a greater capacity to drive more miles per gallon and with the introduction of new fuel-efficient cars through the likes of SUV’s and upcoming new Electric vehicles, improving fuel efficiency and reducing our consumption is a high priority for the UK Government.

Improving fuel efficiency with an engine remap

If you are looking to buy a new car and would like to find out more information on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for specific vehicle brands, the GOV.UK offers new vehicle customers some useful website tools for checking fuel economy, tax and running costs when buying a new car – https://www.gov.uk/co2-and-vehicle-tax-tools

If you are the proud owner of an AudiBMWMINI, Mercedes JaguarLand Rover & Range Rover and are looking to reduce your own fuel costs, then why not consider an engine (ECU) re-mapping service with Stourbridge Automotive?

Not only does an engine re-map reduce fuel costs and improve fuel efficiency it also enhances the overall performance of your vehicle with impressive effects.
