Default Cobb AP - economy map

For those who are using the economy map, is it noticeably improving the fuel economy? how much of an improvement is expected with use of this map?

heh, i got the AP cuz i thot i'd save money by using the economy map.

but once i went stage 2 a week later... forget about economy.

i value the fun over the money i'd "save".

i'm still getting ~20mpg (shifting excessively and revving at everything in sight )

It doesn't work. I ran it for few weeks and found it to be utterly worthless on my old WRX. Pretty much same gas mileage, and crappy performance. This was with 90% city driving.

I had the opposite experience as you Sergi. I found I got about 2-3 mpg higher with the economy map.

p.s. Stop reminiscing about your old WRX.

If you take it easy on the car, I think you'd see more benefit than running the economy map. Just drive like a grandma.....

I'll have to try it sometime - best HiWy MPG I ever get is around 24. But then, I tend to drive 70-80 all the time... Brief bursts upwards of that...

yeah even the stage 2 map can be good when you take it easy.

last weekend I drove up to go skiing, which was 5000 ft up and down (not very steep) for about 200 miles of the tank and the last 130 miles was mixed, some sprited, I got 24.5 mpg!!!

I guess I could try econ, but unless I am like 5 mpg better I don't think it is worth haveing no power.

You can defiantly feel the difference when driving the Econ map.

I did not notice that much difference in mpg either, but the TPS values are changed on the map. So when you floor it the car is now slower than it was before stock
