KPM is proud to introduce a product that will help in the fight to reduce rapidly rising fuel costs. We have called this new innovation Econo Chip.
Econo Chip is more of a change in focus than a new product for KPM Motorsport. It represents a new approach to re-programming your vehicle’s computer that offers significant fuel savings across various applications.
KPM have been involved in “editing or re-programming” computer tunes on factory vehicles and systems since 1997 for the purpose of gaining optimum power and performance. This technology has accommodated customers’ requests for particular applications eg. towing, reviving heavy, sluggish vehicles or simply providing people with greater responsiveness and performance from their vehicles.
We have been able to do this by re-programming a vehicle’s factory ‘generic tunes’. Vehicle manufacturers provide vehicles globally for operation in all types of conditions and driving styles. This type of generic computer tune is designed to provide optimum performance across a wide range of conditions. However, it is not designed to offer an exact tune for specific conditions or applications. KPM have been specialising in meeting these needs for many years with our customers by re-programming these tunes to accommodate a vehicle’s specific requirements.
KPM Motorsport has now partnered with a vehicle computer programming company that has been in operation since 1991 and has extensive resources worldwide. This has enabled us to expand our business into the larger marketplace of economy computer upgrades for vehicles that run on Petrol, LP Gas and Diesel. We have named this exciting new computer upgrade, the Econo Chip.
Using our expertise from enhancing and tuning thousands of engines, KPM’s Econo Chip has the ability to save between 8-15% on the fuel usage of most vehicles on the market depending on manufacturer and size of the vehicle. This translates into a saving of between $360-$675 per year on an average mid to large sized car of average vehicle age, travelling average kilometres at today’s fuel prices. Of course, larger vehicles travelling twice the average kilometres would benefit from the 15% scale end of fuel savings, equating to up to $1350 per year in savings and beyond.
KPM’s Econo Chip involves a simple re-tuning of your vehicle to offer a fuel savings investment that repays itself over an average of 10-14 months depending on your vehicle and usage.
