Aided and abetted by assurances from That Kingo, I fitted the previously used in my SR180 Chip Kit to my couple of weeks old SR150 Rav, and to be perfectly honest the results were only.......stunning !!!!!

Same as previously, better and smoother acceleration, and effortless motorway speed cruising, along with the improved flexibility of. throttle openings feel. The auto box seems to have taken to it like a duck to watter, and changes if anything under normal driving have become even less detectable. When manual mode selected and "Sport" setting used, it really is great fun (albeit might be a bit nippy on the fuel doing that pernamently....)

My one and only brim t'brim test showed a very disappointing 30mpg under normal driving pre-Chip, so I wait with baited breath what it will be with Chip fitted......OBC has immediately started showing an improvement of some 4/5 mpg, but that may mean not a lot. I am fooly (?) aware this is a new engine, so a bit of loosening up to do.

Thanks to Kingo for advice thereon.

We also have to consider falling ambient temperatures Kev. We can ALL expect higher fuel consumption as winter sets in.

Hadn't allowed for that.....all else apart, I maybe played with the gearbox a few time too, which won't have helped.

The colder weather certainly plays a part, I've noticed a sudden decline of 3 or 4 mpg this week, we had the first very slight covering of the white stuff this morning.
