Re-map or chip

Looking for better mpg on 1.3 multijet as I do a lot of miles. I don't need the extra power or speed.

Has anyone any thoughts on this or is it just a gimic?

Hi,
You can get more MPG for free. Moderate you driving, reduce speed and acceleration, don't carry excess weight etc.
"chips" may make the displayed MPG better but this is just because the EUC thinks the fuel pressure and thus flow is lower than it is.

Hi thanks for the reply.

All advice noted and doing as you said my computer is saying around 67mpg so I am going to run an average and get a true consumption. I am hopeful that in reality it might be around 60mpg. Ill be happy if it is. Although I have added to the weight by popping a tyre saver wheel and jack into the wheel well instead of the slime and compressed gas.
