Diesel Engine MPG question... i know im going to catch hell for this



ok, so i know a few people with gmc 2500 diesel trucks, what i didnt know up until about a year ago is that you can basically put in a chip that will almost double your gas mileage. (thats what he told me, please let me know if their is way more to it) so anyways, he had a 2500 diesel getting around 29mpg. now i know you can get this out of a truck, which is great. but here is my question, which i know im going to catch hell for.

can you do the same type of improvements on a VW Toureg TDI? i know it would obviously void the warranty on a new one, but say on a 2012 that someone buys off the lot from a lease. could it be done?


i have prepared the anus


something to make the toureg more manly

You drive a vw!? BOO THIS MAN!!!!!@!@ ok now that that is out of the way, yea you should be able to do that, but it may not help much since they're already pretty good on mpg.

He probably got better gas mileage, just not 29 mpg.

I put a SuperChip programmer in mine and went form 16 to 19. They help but to go from 15 to 29. I don't think so.

I dunno man, I have a coworker that gets about 25-27 mpg in his 05 GMC 2500, and I've read on several different forums, both ford and chevy about mid 20's mpg after having a chip installed.

I drive a 2003 GMC Duramx and routinely get 20-21mpg. Got a programmer that my dad used on the truck and set to highway mode (vs pulling mode).

It's actually a bitch with all 80 gallons on board (25 stock tank+55 gall aux tool/fuel)...That's 1600 miles...and I only take piss breaks and leg stretches.

not true. for diesels, a lot of chips can bump your HP up by ~100, but you won't get double gas mileage. Everyone would buy one

To get milage like that I think you need a tuner, DPF delete, and an EGR blocker/different exhaust. I'm not the person to ask though
