    You are not wrong in concept about ECU update, but practically companies are not known to offer it too often unless there is a major bug.

    However, you can upgrade ECU with Wolfmoto remaps for economy or power modes or a mixed compromise of both. There are other programmers also in market who upgrade ECU with custom maps like only economy or such others as per customer requirements.

    But on stock ECU company program, you should get decent fuel economy as such. Please get your car serviced and checked for faults and drive sedately and shift gears at perfect moments (as in right gears at specific RPM ranges) and you should be getting good FE.

    A simple rule of thumb for diesels esp. MJDs is using 3rd or 4th to cruise within city depending on availability of free roads and using overdrive and maintaining 90-110 speed on highway for FE over 20kmpl+.
