I'm just wondering how it affects MPG? I have read on some places that it can actually increase it?

My trip computer is giving me an official MPG reading of 46mpg which seems optimistic (haven't worked it out myself yet as I only just got the car) but would this be skewed by the remap?
Most good remaps don't effect MPG unless you use the extra power. None of them will increase the MPG, although it is possible to do that slightly by bypassing the warm up resistor in the ECU with a manual choke switch. Quite a common mod on taxi cars as it gets the engine into lean burn mode during the warm up, BUT it does result in stalls if you lift off the go pedal when it's still cold.
