Critics say automakers can be greener with better computer programming
A leading online seller of new cars in England says automakers aren't getting the most green out of their engine-management computers. Ling Valentine says the same engine is spread over a variety of vehicles and programmed for reliability and reduced service intervals.
Simon Hall, who runs a reprogramming shop for a variety of vehicles, makes the same argument that today's vehicles can be greener with a few changes in the computer code.
Basically, the two feel that consumers should be allowed to "chip" their cars without fear of losing a warranty.
