Eco-Tuning – Have fun and save fuel

Tried and tested thousands of times, the RaceChip® chiptuning modules can not only give you up to 31 percent more power but you can also save fuel. Assuming that you are not constantly hitting the gas and driving faster than before you installed the RaceChip module you will save fuel.

Fuel savings at each fill up- up to $ 7

If you maintain your driving behavior you will increase your fuel economy by up to 5 mpg with one of our RaceChip modules.  A 15 gallon tank can now get you 60 miles farther *. Or the equivalent of $ 7 ** lower fuel costs at a cost of $4 per US gallon. Less pain at the pump!

RaceChip® Eco-tuning – the same advantages

  • the original controller of your engine is not affected
  • All motor protection programs remain active and unchanged
  • You can perform the installation without special tools or additional automotive knowledge
  • The installation typically takes less than 15 minutes
  • The Race Chip ® can be removed at any time

How does eco-tuning work?

Eco tuning calculates an optimized injection amount, pressure and ignition timing. The first noticeable result is performance enhancement through increased torque.  The increase in power makes it possible to drive at a slower speed but still maintain greater performance and fuel economy.

How much fuel you save depends on factors such as:

  • Characteristics of your engine
  • Your driving behavior
  • Tolerance of the vehicle series
  • Setting of the RaceChip®
  • Weather conditions
  • The circumference and width of the tires

Tips for fuel efficient driving

  1. Check the correct tire pressure (see manufacturer’s instructions). You can increase it if necessary by up to 2.9 psi.
  2. Worn tires increase fuel consumption. Replace tires early, usually every two years.
  3. Extreme temperatures will affect handling characteristics and therefore fuel consumption. Even rain, snow and hot asphalt have a major effect on fuel consumption.
  4. Drive at low speed – with RaceChip you have plenty of torque!
  5. Plan ahead. Avoid giving unnecessary gas when there is a red light or a traffic jam ahead.
  6. Let your vehicle coast to a stop, opposed to breaking heavily.
  7. Use the gas pedal as gently and as evenly as possible, You want to avoid a gas, no gas, gas, no gas, habit of driving.
  8. Turn the engine off if you are expecting to idle for more than 20 seconds.  It’s worth it.
  9. Remove unused luggage carriers, bicycle racks, and any unnecessary weight from your vehicle. The more the vehicle weighs, the more the engine must compensate in power to move the car.

Note: Each engine has its own characteristics. The Engine may have an increase or decrease of tolerance band of up to 10 percent.  This means that a 100-horsepower engine from the factory may only accommodate 90 horsepower or could go as high as 110 horsepower.  This has an impact on fuel consumption.  The manufacturers standards on fuel consumption are based upon optimal driving conditions.

* Previous consumption 29 mpg and 435 miles per tank; in addition to 5 mpg is equal to 34 mpg and about 495 miles per tank ** Fuel cost reduction of 60 miles (optimized RaceChip®) further per tank, consumption of 34 mpg and fuel price of $4 per gallon.
