Here at Fast Road Conversions, we can remap most commercial vehicles including HGVs, 7.5 tonne LCV's, vans, tractors, excavators and other farm or industrial machinery including generators and marine engines.
The tuning of commercial vehicles is not just limited to more power, torque and driveability but with the right map we can achieve very significant improvements in fuel consumption. Most of our maps are designed to produce the best gains in economy although on request we can have the upgrade modified for the best safe power increase which is helpful when heavy loads are being carried. Please note that the remaps are designed to maximise fuel efficiency yet still improve power and torque.
Typical MPG improvements can be between 7-15% and in some cases up to 20%. These figures allow the return of investment to be recovered quickly, not only from saving fuel but by also travelling a greater distance on each tank requires fewer stops to refill.
A truck covering 100,000 miles per year at 7.5mpg uses 13,333 gallons of fuel - based on a price of £1.35 per litre this equates to a fuel cost of £81,700 per year. Even a 5% saving from a remap means a saving of £4085 per year. Savings of 10 or even 15% are often achieved so savings can be doubled or even trebled. The remapping is still quite literally a software update to the ECU and does not require re-tuning at any point.
