Has anyone noticed?

Post by Mike Rometer » Wed Mar 27, 2019 9:55 am

A boost in power when the odometer ticks over 10K , and again at 15K.

It was very noticeable on my last X-Type (bought at 5200m), and I wondered if the XEs are the same (the intervals maybe different).

It was obviously something implanted in the CPU to do with final running in. It didn't happen anywhere near service intervals so not likely an update

Strangely enough I was thinking the other day that the car seems to be accelerating quicker than when I first had it. I bought it 6 months ago with 7000 on the clock, I recently passed 10000 miles. I was thinking maybe the car was getting used to my driving style and the gearbox was adapting. (the gear box was reset to ''as new" a couple of thousand miles back after I queried lumpy operation). Maybe you are right, perhaps the car does have some sort of limiter. Would be interesting to find out.

ah so our XE 25T has just ticked over 2300 miles and feels very slow compared to my XF diesel - so I need to do another 7700 miles

The ECU definitely does not have some kind of mileage related limiter. I'm sorry it just doesn't.

I've noticed mine switches itself out of Eco mode on occasion - could this be it?

Eco mode is the Old Age Pensioner setting. So when I get a bit more wobbly and confused, I can switch to this !!

The only thing I've noticed is a slight performance increase as an engine loosens up. Generally, they get a bit more willing to rev.

Agreed, that was really noticeable in the F Type S. You lose traction a lot more when it has 10,000km on it than when it was newish, and that happens even with newish tyres. It might also be the case with the 25T, it feels quick enough.

Cheeky b*****ks :lol:

Majority of my driving is steady A-road stuff and eco suits the 180D, mostly keeping it around max torque rpm.
