Economy driving | Redefined
Reducing the cost motoring makes perfect sense, and Motech Eco-map means that it no longer has to be at the expense of enjoyable driving.
There are three key elements that govern the economy your vehicle is able to deliver; it's specification, it's condition, and you!
Even if you drive with a constant eye on the fuel gauge there is a maximum level of economy that your vehicle, in its standard specification, can achieve. Without correct maintenance even this level will prove difficult to attain.
When it comes to fuel economy, how you drive your car is probably the biggest determining factor. You don't even have to be heavy-footed to see an unwanted drop in mpg. Its just that with the many types of journey you make, and the driving conditions you encounter, for most of the time your cars original set up will struggle to meet those demands without sacrificing economy. All too often the need to focus on improved economy means a compromised and frustrating driving experience.Motech Eco Map has been specifically developed to re-profile your vehicles engine characteristics, enabling it to deliver improved economy and an enhanced driving experience across all driving conditions. And while the results will obviously depend on your vehicles condition and your driving-style, the reformulated highly-efficient fuel flow, increased power at lower revs, improved engine response and acceleration, combine to deliver a more relaxed confident drive, improved fuel efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions and lower motoring costs.
Simply put, Eco Map optimizes your cars performance characteristics, enabling it to deliver the driving experience you want. In other words; 'your vehicle, the way you want it, superb performance, great economy - no compromise'.
Smooth | Responsive | A joy to drive
City Map transforms your cars urban performance by smoothing power delivery, improving engine responsiveness, acceleration, fuel efficiency and reducing CO2
It is a popular misconception that long distance and high mileage driving are the most detrimental to a vehicles health. In fact it is urban driving, with its shorter stop go and often bumper-to-bumper journeys, that provide some of the most wearing road conditions that modern cars face.
And it's not just your car that has a tough time. Urban driving, particularly on busy and congested roads can be frustrating, tiresome and take its full toll on the driver. It is in these conditions that all the minor shortcomings in your cars performance characteristics, that are often masked when driving on open roads and on long journeys, become disappointingly obvious.
Nothing is better at revealing the flat spots and uneven power delivery of your cars engine than constantly repeated cycles of low-rev engine idle, followed by short bursts of acceleration, and changing up and down through the gears in quick succession. It is these shortcomings in your cars performance that cause those heart-stopping moments when your cars engine hesitates just as you pull out or overtake, and that make necessary journeys unnecessarily tiresome.Until now the only remedy has been to accelerate harder and drive through the drop in performance. Unfortunately the consequence of this is increased fuel consumption.
City Map has been specifically developed to improve the urban driving experience by smoothing power delivery and improving engine responsiveness and acceleration. You will quickly notice the sharper response and improved engine dynamics that will deliver a more relaxed and confident drive. And, while the results will obviously depend on your driving style, you can also expect improved fuel efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions and motoring costs.
Performance through technology
Active Map doesn’t just improve your cars performance, it completely transformsit. Significantly increased power, acceleration and mid-range performance. Smoother, responsive power delivery, and all with Improved fuel efficiency.
Turbo charged cars typically see up to a 35% increase in power and up to a 40% increase in torque.* Even non-turbocharged cars can expect to see serious increases in both.*
Importantly, it's not just in terms of out-and-out performance where Active Map excels, its how it delivers that performance that sets it apart. Smoother power delivery and enhanced tractability combine to deliver a more confident and rewarding driving experience. And, while the results will obviously depend on your driving style, you can also expect improved fuel efficiency.*
If your driving includes high-speed journeys on Autobahns you can also specify the further option of unleashing your cars full performance by having its speed limiter switched off.
What's more, if you are the driver of a bigger capacity normally aspirated performance car, (e.g. BMW M3, Audi RS4), you will really appreciate how a Active Map tunes out the '2nd-gear shunt' that makes your car difficult to drive smoothly in urban conditions.
*Dependant on make, model, mileage and condition of car.

Fitting one can save you money
Cuts fuel and operating costs, reduces CO2 emissions, enhances road safety and increases vehicle life. Quite simply no other modification to a standard specification vehicle can produce such instant all-round improvements.
Most makes and types of vehicles manufactured after 2002 are fitted with an ECU, (Engine Control Unit), effectively a small on-board computer that controls the engines performance characteristics. The programme that a manufacturer installs on a vehicle’s ECU effectively defines the performance and driving experience of that vehicle. Included in the manufacturers standard programme there is a sub-programme that acts to limit the vehicles speed by controlling throttle response.
This programming is used by manufactures of all vehicles, from HGV’s to super-cars, to govern maximum vehicle speeds. While this programming provides manufacturers with the flexibility to ensure that their vehicles can meet important safety and emissions legislations in many different countries, often this ‘one-size fits all approach’ is a blunt instrument that fails to reflect operators / drivers ‘real world’ vehicle use.
Motech Speed Limiter is specifically designed and developed to provide your vehicles with a bespoke limiter programme that is tailored to meet your particular every-day journey requirements.
It produces instant and verifiable reductions in fuel and operating costs, reduces CO2, and for most vehicles it will pay for itself within three months. Where a vehicle’s ECU allows, Motech Speed Limiter will also reprogram the rev limiter function to deliver even greater gains.
Q. Will this effect the Warranty?
A. If were 100% honest , Yes if they data log the car, Then they can see its requesting more boost etc. But the chances of any UK dealers doing this is very very small.If you are worried about this and have a service coming up, we can flash the original file back to your vehicle for you. (please note: A charge for workshop hours would apply for this service).
Q. Why doesn’t the manufacturer do this
from the factory?
A. The main reason is because the vehicle could be shipped any where in the world and therefore has to perform the same in different climates and on different qualities of fuel.
Another big reason is because of product lines and market position. ie: Audi wouldn’t want there A3 to perform better than there S3, which is more expensive, as they wouldn’t sell as many.We are confident you will be happy with the improvements our software makes to your vehicle.But if for some reason you are not, we offer a 14 day money back guarantee and will re-flash the original file back to your vehicle. In buying our software you will have a limited life time warranty on it. This applies as long as you own the car and is on our software only.
Q. Should I tell my Insurance company ?
A. Yes any change to your vehicle with out telling them will void your insurance. Motech work closely with Adrian flux Insurance services to give you a very completive quote with a Motech remap installed.
Q. Will this shorten the life of my engine?
A. There are vehicles in the UK with 100,000+ miles on there clocks, running on performance software. Most other companies will say no just to get a sale! But in some ways the Truth is Yes, as you would now be asking parts of the vehicle to work harder and where they would be expected to last for 200,000 miles maybe now only do 170,000 miles.Our tip is too keep on top of servicing your vehicle, use good fuel, let it warm up before driving it hard and then cool down after. All this should help you to not notice a difference in the life of your engine.
Q. Is a tuning box better than a re-map?
A. A tuning box is a way of fooling the vehicles on-bored computer ECU in to upping the fuelling boost etc. Some do this very well and so not so.
There a good way to make power, but were a tuning box is always sending a fixed percentage to the ECU say 7% all the time, the re-maps power can give this when needed. They can be tailored to the drive and they way the vehicle is driven.
For example if your sitting at 60mph just very light on the throttle the tuning box will still be spending the same signal the ECU asking for more. With a Motech re-map the power is on request. If very light on the throttle you want to be asking as little as possible from the car to save on fuel. Also many tuning box’s over time will course running issues and on diesel vehicle to smoke very heavily under load.
