    Petrol Economy Chips?

    Are they available and if so, are they worth the money?

    not available as far as i know. the best economy is keep your car well serviced, be light on the throttle and do not carry excessive weight around in the car

    My boss's brother said he heard about it and is going to find out about it for me. As light as I can be on the throttle with the least amount of weight, the best I was getting in warm weather was 31mpg. With petrol going up (114.9 here now) I was just after something to help with the mpg.

    A VXR??????????

    I get around 34mpg, and I can be a bit hefty on the pedal at times.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
