Mini Cooper S with Dinan Stage 3 Engine Software
Hey guys, I just recently purchased a used 2003 Mini Cooper S with s stage 3 Dinan software upgrade. I cant seem to find anything about what this stage 3 upgrade does? Does anybody have any ideas?
I also should note that the car has a Dinan cold air intake, 15% pulley, and Magnaflow exhaust, running on 18 inch rims. I have been panicking because I'm only averaging 24mpg, whereas I am reading other MCS drivers are averaging well over 30. I dont have bad driving habbits, I generally never rev past 4000rpm and try and shift by 3000rpm and drive fairly conservatively. I have diven a full tank only on highway driving averaging about 70-80mph and still cant seem to get over 24mph.
So basically I was wondering if all these upgrades are why my car is getting such low mpg. Any advice would be appreciated.
