    Tech 2 seems to sort out your fuel economy!

    For the last year and a bit Iíve been getting around 230 miles to a tank of petrol, I took my car in to Vauxhall to have cruise control switched on via Tech 2 and I have just got 330 miles to a tank of petrol! And that wasnít going easy on the accelerator ether!

    That'll be cause you'd have had your ECU upgraded.

    Any software improvements would be in the brain of your car. Thus if your fuel economy could be improved it will be.

    I found the same too.
