In that case I'm not sure how to interpret the information on the VAC info page:

Q) With more power, how does my car not consume more fuel? Will it be as reliable?

This is a logical and completely normal question from a gasoline car perspective. Know that the diesel engine is always ingesting the same amount of air per revolution as there is no throttle plate in a diesel engine. What we do is alter how and when fuel is delivered without increasing the amount of boost or fuel.
What does that mean, exactly?
