  • Sports button mpg?

    Ok might be bit silly but bare with me!

    I hardly ever use my sports button, and only switch it on to overtake and.............thats it realy!

    Was wondering if driving with it on continuously in the VXR effects the mpg???

    Does it improve or make it worse?

    I know in my 150 CDTI with DTUK CRD2 box, having it on improved mpg.

    Makes no difference, except you will like it and use your right foot more thus decreasing your mpg.

            Right mate I do a lot of motor way mile I've done trips with sports on and normal driving I've got a tms stage 2 map on and driving normal at 80 mph I get about 32-34mpg but with it on it drops to 30-32 at same speed all done with cruise control on so for every day driving I don't use sports mode but it's great to have the choice of jumping from 240 bhp standard to 285 with sports on brings a nice smile not many cars have the choice of running 2 maps lol

              The car can only hold one map, pressing sports button will adjust the accelerator pedal when you get full power - i.e. you will get full power on 80% travel of pedal so it appears that you have two maps (not sure of the percentage)

              Also pressing the sports button will adjust the steering sensitivity and engage IDS suspension if you have it.

                Is the TMS map put on with a handheld machine mate?

                Slaters Vauxhall in Colwyn Bay are now a TMS centre, and have offered me a remap by buing a handheld machine............think they said a bluefin!

                Was the sales man that told me so dont think he knew a lot about it! lol

                      Yes, the map will be uploaded by the bluefin device when done at a TMS centre. If you go to a TMS center I believe you can have the map install without purchasing the bluefin.

                      The bluefin is just a device for uploading a map, you will still get the same maps if you went to TMS HQ.

                        Mate I love you u are a vat of knowledge lol, cheers for clearing that map stuff up I thought I was running 2 maps as my standard mode is a lot more less powerfull than with the sports on, my dv sounds a lot louder with sports in too that's why I thought the turbo is putting out more boost!! Cheers for clearing that up pal
