  1. Remap 2.5 4motion for fuel economy?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi there there's been much written here about remaps, but the focus seemed to be on more power and torque. I'm rather interested in a remap that aims at better fuel economy, whatever happens to the BHP. It's for a 2005 T30 2.5 TDi 4motion 130 with about 175k miles, well maintained. It's...
