HGV Remapping


Fuel savings are most important to those who spend the greatest amount on fuel – HGV vehicles are not only low mpg vehicles but also in many cases cover huge mileage – 100 to 150 thousand miles per year is not uncommon in a HGV and while leaps and bounds have been made over recent years to the economy of these Trucks, 8mpg is still about the best that can be expected.

FlashRemapping are a Viezu “Platinum” approved dealer and have the ability to tune most HGV vehicles for improved performance and economy. Up to 20% improvements in performance are achievable and fuel savings of up to 15% can be achieved with remapping the vehicles ECU especially when combined with a little driver training.

So lets have a look at the potential savings –

A truck covering 100,000 miles per year at 7.5mpg uses 13,333 gallons of fuel – based on a price of £1.35 per litre this equates to a fuel cost of £81,700 per year. Even a 5% savings from the remapping means a saving of £4085 per year – quite incredible really. Savings of 10 or even 15% are actually quite often achieved so savings can be double or treble this figure. The remapping is still quite literally a software update to the ECU and does not require re-tuning at any point like Krypton tuning of old. So the fuel savings and performance will continue for as long as you keep the vehicle.

FlashRemapping offer a national mobile service for ECU remapping for trucks and HGVs with prices starting at £695 for a single truck and discounts for fleets. In most cases the remapping can be completed in less than 2 hours giving very little “down time”.

Bhp, Torque figures and potential fuel savings can be  found for the majority of trucks here.
