Brake Specific Fuel Consumption.
#1
Just on the off chance does anyone on the forum have any " Brake Specific Fuel Consumption " data for the Berlingo 1.9D engine ?
Mines 2005 if it makes any difference.
If so I'd be pleased if you could share the info.
Geoff.

As far as I can tell it is a measure of engine efficiency expressed in percentage terms. Its like comparing the effectiveness of Jo Brand and Frank Skinner at amusing 100 randomly selected members of the public under laboratory conditions. An example of the type of joke that Jo or Frank might tell could be something like 'What do you get when you cross a shihtzu with a poodle?' Answer - s**t-poo.

There is a useful description of the concept with excellent illustrations here...easier than me trying to explain it and especially the typing out of it.
