The thing is not that GM couldn't do better. It's that they couldn't do better and check all the boxes.Oh yeah, give these folks your money.
They know what it takes to make the Volt way more efficient at burning gas than GM.
GM is a bunch of armatures when it comes to getting their EPA fuel mileage numbers as high as possible. They left so much on the table.
Yeah right^ So much THIS ^
Ah flex-fuel. I used to be interested, but then I researched how many E85 stations were nearby and figured how much fuel I was consuming. Maybe if I were making my own alcohol.... Otherwise I'd be adding a feature I might never use.Yeah right
This tune also provides full support for an ethanol sensor and flex fuel capability, the Volt works well as a flex fuel car but didn't have the $35 part to do so.
Also GM has made big improvements to their own tunes since 2009 when the 1.4 engine tune was originally developed for the Volt.
One of the tuners interests is getting a tune from a 2016 + Volt to overlay improvements from it to gen i
Is this worth it for everyone?
nope but I have seen far more pointless mods at far greater expense done to the Volt by members here and people seem to applaud those changes.
For those of us who care about efficiency and flex fuel capabilities this tune is for us.
Not sure what you are being sensitive about. However, I think it is rather bold of you to drop in here asking for a handout, especially as a brand new member. And the weak explanation about it maybe being beneficial to the Volt community doesn't change that. I didn't remark about the original request, because as far as I am concerned, anyone can ask anything they want to. But following up by calling us rude is not called for.
