March Vans of the Month - Commercial tuning special

Commercial vans are essential for businesses that rely on transporting goods or people. They are also incredibly important to us at TDI-Tuning, as we provide thousands of tunes for commercial vehicles every year. These vehicles are designed to be tough, reliable, and spacious, with features that make them ideal for commercial and everyday use. Did you know that you can improve the performance and fuel efficiency of your commercial van with a TDI-Tuning box?


How does a tuning box work and how can I improve my performance and fuel efficiency? If you have a diesel, petrol or hybrid vehicle, we have a tuning box for you. They work by optimising the signals that get sent to the engines ECU. This controls fuel injection, boost pressures, and other key parameters of the engine. This allows the engine to operate more efficiently, resulting in improved performance. So, what other benefits come from tuning a commercial or trade van are there?

Tuning your van for fuel efficiency

For commercial/trade vehicles, fuel efficiency is a critical factor. These vehicles are often used for long hours and frequently cover long distances. By installing a TDI-Tuning box, businesses can improve their fuel efficiency, saving money on fuel costs in the long run. This isn't a myth, or a particularly hard thing to achieve either, take a look at some of our customer feedback to do with saving money!


As a quick disclaimer, you aren't going to improve fuel efficiency if your right root is planted to the floor everywhere you go. We do have some 'driving tips' if you want some more advice on achieving optimal fuel efficiency (Page 6 of our instruction manual)

Specialised van tuning 

Every commercial/trade vehicle is different, and each one requires a different tuning solution. We offer custom tuning solutions so we can meet the specific needs of our customers. This means that your vehicle is optimised for your specific personal and business requirements. If you want a fuel efficiency focused tune, speak to our team. If you would rather have a mixture, or full on POWER, then let us know, we can customise the tune for your requirements. The standard map files our tuning box comes with are installed with 7 modes/settings for you to choose from, all ranging from low power to high power solutions.


Reliable van tuning 

Commercial/trade vehicle owners need their vehicles to be reliable and efficient. By installing a TDI-Tuning box, you can improve the vehicle's torque and power, allowing it to perform better and handle heavy loads with ease. Having more performance doesn't have to come with a reliability trade off. We ensure our tuning boxes are specifically tuned for your exact make and model, plus we bench test and road test all our tunes to ensure they are consistently reliable. We wouldn't have so much great feedback for our product if it wasn't super-reliable, take a look at some of the feedback below.


Minimising downtime for your fleet / company cars

As commercial/trade vehicles are often used for business purposes, minimizing downtime is important. TDI-Tuning boxes can be installed quickly and easily, ensuring that the vehicle is back on the road as soon as possible. Some installs take as little as 10 minutes to complete, it all comes down to your specific engine configuration.

Reprogram your van

Our box is reprogrammable, so you can send it back to us when you get a new vehicle and have it reprogrammed. We provide everything you need for your new vehicle, including harness, fitting kit, and new instructions. It's such a simple process, sometimes you don't even need to send us the box back, as our Bluetooth tuning boxes can be remotely reprogrammed. This means we just need to send a new vehicle harness out, and you are good to go!
