2002 Mini Cooper S Q&A

2002 Mini Cooper S Question: Will I save gas by dis-connecting the super-charger?

The car gets about 25 mpg around time and has power to spare. I figure that dis-connecting the super-charger will improve gas mileage. But will it hurt the engine in any way? -
Answer 1
Your engine is specifically designed to use a supercharger, and you cannot simply disconnect it and see mpg performance go up. I think that if you disable the supercharger, the car will not run. -
Answer 2
Agree with Matt. You can't disconnect the super charger the engine and engine controls are designed to utilize the super charger. -
