10% FUEL SAVING ON AVERAGE
Due to its added mid range power, the Surbo enables drivers to overtake easily, and that may be safer compared to following vehicles closely (in order not to be tailgated especially on highways), or staying behind a tall vehicle such as an MPV, which obscures the brake lights of the vehicle in front of it. To avoid getting into a chain collision, use the Surbo's power to get away through gaps in the traffic. The Surbo also enables automatic gearboxes to kick down easily with a light tap of the foot, so that the correct gear is quickly selected before an overtaking manoeuvre. In extreme situations requiring maximum acceleration, even in D mode, automatic gearboxes can kick down to 2nd gear from a cruising speed of 80 km/h in 4th gear by tapping the accelerator twice. See the testimonial below:
The Surbo may increase the predictability of turbocharged vehicles because according to a Surbo user, whose 2012 Mercedes C250 CGi is fitted with Surbo, it was simpler for him to feel when the turbo was coming on, so that he could time his overtaking moves more easily. Previously without Surbo, if he pressed the accelerator the turbo would take some time to come on, and when it did, there would be a sudden increase in power, so he had to keep a longer distance from the car in front, which would make overtaking more complicated.
