Soaring petrol prices are forcing more motorists to have their engines upgraded for improved fuel economy, says Viezu Technologies.
Paul Busby, the company’s chief executive, said: â€œMotorists are simply being squeezed and squeezed.
â€œPrivate vehicle owners and corporations alike are looking to do anything they can to reduce their vehicle running costs.â€
Viezu has seen a 40% increase in demand for engine upgrades since October last year and claims that engine re-mapping can achieve an average 10-15% fuel efficiency improvement.
â€œOur results speak for themselves in terms of engine, fuel efficiency and CO2 reductionâ€, said Busby. â€œOver a vehicleâ€™s whole life there are very considerable savings to be made.”
