Question about ECU

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i resetted my ecu when i installed my short-ram and that was the 1st time i resetted it.. b4 that i was getting 580-600kms from a full tank .. the short-ram only allowed me to reach 520kms with the fuel light going on at least 5-10kms. I've just installed the injen cai and resetted it again hoping i would get 580-600 once again... just put my full tank today and going to see what result i will be getting

just wondering if u guys have experienced this ?

good point northy.. do u think down shifting while matching the revs would b the problem? i know its good for the synchros but i did it on the old car and the petrol distance was the same.

just think of how many times you would do that during one tank of fuel, everytime you blip the throttle you are using more fuel so it all adds up...

Woops... maybe i shouldnt have been downhifting in your car :P although you gotta admit it sounded nice :P

I blip the throttle every down shift, unless in peak hour where there is no point. I'm getting anywhere from 700 to 800km from each tank. There is about 10L left once the fuel light comes on in a Sportivo.

No way can get to 700km-800km for city driving! Must be doing a lot of freeway driving, City driving I can only do around 500km-550km, Last tank was 610km before the light comes on but thats with a bit of freeway driving! Traffic play a big part in fuel consumption and there has been a lots of traffic jam lately!

If you have changed you CAI and exhaust it will drop a bit! i noticed.

No, on average I'll get to 600km when the fuel light goes on, with mixed driving... I guess most have a heavier foot than I.

That probably works against you. Sometimes making the engine labour slightly in higher gears at lower speeds can actually increase consumption as well even though you're using less rpm and the engine still seems to pull. I tried that found I was going backwards in terms of consumption. Keep it in 4th until up to and over 75km/h
