Firstly, welcome to TM
It may not just be the auto box. I was suffering with heavy fuel consumption on my new Plus 4 GDi, but after an ECU remap it appears to have improved. I haven't been able to tell by how much as I haven't used the car enough since it was done. It might be worth enquiring at your local dealer.

F12Mog,

Now that's an interesting car. As Neil said, you must be the very first Auto +4 on the forum. We will all be very interested in how you get on.
If you are unhappy with the fuel consumption, do go along to your dealer and get the ECU up grade.
I had mine done a while back and over the following 7000 miles a reasonably accurate measure of miles between fill ups shows an improvement of around 10mpg so well worth doing especially as it is a free up grade!!
I hope you enjoy your car in the coming season. cheers


Here for a good time not a long time!!

As car loosened up, a slight improvement became apparent. Checked actual comsumption against indicated and found 20% improvement. Indicated was 27mpg, actual was 32mpg. Took car back to Morgan, replaced chip, did not notiice any improviement in fuel consumption.

Had suspension upgrade from New Elms... car steering improved at speed, and progressive ride on shocks more comfortable. No detriment to normal road use, car still feels very sporty. Adjustable shocks can be sett to individual taste. Wife agreed ride much more comfortable. ...Ray.
