£9.99 (ex. VAT)
Description:This is an incredible little device which connects to your smartphone to give you real-time stats and heads-up on where your driving style can be improved.
It also measures G-force of acceleration, deceleration and cornering.
It can also be used with some knowledge as a basic diagnostics tool.
We use one of these in one of our cars in the office and realised why we were not getting good MPG. It wasn't our driving because invariably it is in the 90-100 band so our driving skills and car sympathy is great. Looking at the stats, we could see that the engine temperature was never getting above 53degC. We deduced that the engine thermostat must be stuck open. Therefore the car thought it was still warming up and was injecting more fuel than necessary to try and reach 82degC. We changed the thermostat and BINGO! The car now returns nearly 50% more MPG.
