I work for Openreach and all our vans either have or will be remapped. We even have a sticker on the back telling everyone how good we are to the environment. One of my friends is a workshop manager for BT fleet and he said they are saving a fortune on fuel, but do keep in mind that it is one of the biggest fleets of vehicles in europe. They have trained there own mechanics to do the job and have bought all the kit and pay something silly like £50 per remap. This makes it easier to make saving. I don't think the average man in the street paying about £300 for a remap would ever say it was worth it for the saving alone. I had my Fiat 2.3 remapped just to stop all the gear changes from 4th to 5th and back, and it has made it better to drive.
Sorry I meant to say I drive a ford transit at work that has been remapped and I did feel that it was much more car like after it had been done.
