What is Economy remapping?

Economy remapping, also known as “eco-tuning” or “fuel efficiency tuning,” refers to the process of adjusting the software in a vehicle’s Engine Control Unit (ECU) to prioritize fuel efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.

Here’s how it works and its benefits:

Optimized Air/Fuel Ratio: By ensuring that the air-to-fuel ratio is always optimal for combustion, the engine can operate more efficiently, burning less fuel in the process.

Improved Torque at Low RPMs: Increasing torque at lower RPMs allows drivers to shift gears earlier and maintain lower engine speeds, which generally leads to reduced fuel consumption.

Eliminating Throttle Limitations: Some vehicles limit throttle response in certain situations. By removing or adjusting these limitations, the driver can achieve the desired speed with less throttle input, improving fuel economy.

Adapting Turbo Pressure: For turbocharged vehicles, adjusting the turbo pressure can help achieve more efficient combustion.

Advancing Ignition Timing: Adjusting the moment the spark plug fires can lead to more complete combustion and better efficiency.

Benefits of economy remapping:

  • Fuel Savings: The most noticeable benefit is reduced fuel consumption, which translates to cost savings in the long run.
  • Improved Torque: Even though the primary focus is on fuel efficiency, an economy remap can often result in smoother torque delivery, especially at low to mid RPM ranges, making driving more comfortable.
  • Enhanced Throttle Response: Improved responsiveness from the accelerator can make the vehicle feel more agile and nimble, especially in city driving scenarios.
  • Reduced Carbon Footprint: As fuel consumption decreases, CO2 emissions often drop as well, making for a more eco-friendly drive.
  • Prolonged Engine Life: An engine that runs more efficiently is less prone to wear and tear, potentially extending its lifespan.
  • Optimized Engine Performance: While the main goal is better fuel efficiency, the engine’s overall performance may be more refined and harmonized.
  • Cost Efficiency: Over time, the savings on fuel can offset the initial cost of the remapping, making it a worthwhile investment for many drivers.

It’s worth noting that the actual fuel savings achieved can vary based on the vehicle, driving conditions, and driving habits. Additionally, while economy remapping can offer benefits, it’s crucial to work with reputable professionals to ensure the vehicle remains within safe operating parameters and doesn’t compromise the longevity or performance of the engine.

Had my L200 and discovery remapped by Vertex, wanted them both doing for towing. They both now pull like trains. Thanks again, great service. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Absolute pleasure dealing with Vertex Turning! The beauty of them being mobile is I had a last minute job that we met me at and everything was done there instead of at home. Quick, Easy and Professional! ๐Ÿ† 10/10

Remapped and the car has never been so good. Fuel economy has risen and I have that extra bit of power and pull when I need it on the motorway.

After visiting a few tuners for tuning my mercedes A35. Darren by far blew me away. i had people blaming the cpc module for not noticing any difference in the tuning applied. as soon as Darren applied his tune we took it out on the road, did several pulls. The car made my legs go like jelly! This guy knows his stuff and made my A35 a total animal. Thanks again!

I contacted Darren with an issue I had with my car. it had been mapped by the previous owner. To me it didn't quite feel right. I booked it in for a check up. I received a call 2 hours later, explaining the problem. I picked it up later that afternoon, OMG, its a totally different car, drives so smooth. Thank you so much!!
