BT Fleet launches engine remapping service

Fleet management company BT Fleet has today announced the launch of an engine remapping service for cars and light commercial vehicles, which promises fuel savings and a reduction in emissions.

BT Fleet’s engine remapping service has a proven track record, after having been successfully deployed on 24,000 Openreach vehicles to deliver an average fuel saving of 15% and a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions; the equivalent of removing 1,900 London taxis from the roads.

Dave Bowen (pictured), managing director of BT Fleet, said: “BT Fleet is delighted to be able to offer engine remapping and the associated cost savings to the wider business-driving community.

“Our remapping solution is another example of how BT Fleet creates and delivers tried-and-tested cost-saving initiatives for UK businesses and their drivers.”

Fleets interested in engine remapping a vehicle can call 0843 176 0940 and BT Fleet will check if the vehicle can be remapped and how much it will cost.

BT Fleet will then book an appointment at the driver’s convenience at one of 64 BT Fleet garages in the UK to make the necessary changes to the engine.

Remapping can also be undertaken at the driver’s place of work or home.

Prices for remapping start at £250, plus VAT. BT Fleet is confident that the cost of remapping an engine can be recovered by the projected fuel savings within six months of driving.

    If BT Fleet can gain a reduction in the emissions figure relating to my car, I'm interested. Otherwise, I'll hang onto what little punch my 1.8 diesel-engined Mondeo has......

    What they are offering isnt new, just have a look over the internet and you will find many companies offering the same service. I would use Superchips if I was looking at that option, they have years of expereince. BT for sure havent developed the system I guess they are rebranding someone elses product!

    I agree. If it is similar to their broadband, it won't be as fast as promised, the range won't be too good, and there will be a £16.95 monthly charge for land line rental......

    According to recent changes to the construction and use regulations it is now an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Regulation 61a(3)) to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet. I know the change in legislation is aimed at dealing with people removing DPF filters and the like but surely in remapping the ECU this is also changing the emmissions from those originally intended. With fines of up to £1000 for a car and £2500 for a light commercial this could be an expensive mistake.
