MPG is about +5 more than...

Motorway driving has gone from about 65/68 mpg to about 55/60 and town driving has gone from about 55 to 45 and as low as 30 at some points. The engine feels absolutely fine, still...
  4. 1.4 150 petrol vs 2.0 184 diesel

  6. TDI Tuning vs Revo map

    I'm thinking of getting my Mk3 Leon FR remapped (2.0 TDI 150PS) When looking online (apart from a custom remap) the main two companies I can find are Revo and TDI tuning, the main difference between the two being the revo map is a remap of my ECU, and the TDI tuning being a tuning box that...
