2002 Mini Cooper S Q&A
2002 Mini Cooper S Question: Will I save gas by dis-connecting the super-charger?
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. - matte
Agree with Matt. You can't disconnect the super charger the engine and engine controls are designed to utilize the super charger. - patrick mannion
