ECO Optimisation for Passenger cars
How does it influence the fuel consumption?
With Kraftwerk tuning the fuel burn efficiency is optimised and maximised. The car needs less fuel, you can drive longer with one full tank and your visits at the petrol station are less frequent.
Due to increased torque, the consumption reduces in normal driving conditions. Depending on the car and the engine type saves up to 15% are possible. Considering that the car is moved more than 90% in normal, non-aggressive mode, the fuel savings are substantial.
Fuel consumption, torque and rpm are in direct relationship to each other.
In principle, more fuel is burned at higher rpm. Through increasing of torque a faster up-shift is possible into the next gear therefore high rpm’s are avoided. The engine works most efficiently at the rpm figure where the torque is the highest.
Can I positively influence the fuel consumption with my driving style?
Of course you can. However the rules of physics are same for everyone, which means if you drive continuously in full throttle mode, the fuel savings will be hardly possible. Under normal driving conditions the fuel consumption is directly related to the rpm’s. As through the tuning the torque is increased, you can utilise a faster up-shift of gears and avoid driving at high rpm’s. All that positively contributes to saving fuel.
Higher fuel savings can be realised in long, travel journeys at constant average speed, highest gear and low rpm vs. stop-and-go city drive.
