not sure what they have done but i think the van may have done about 3000-3500 miles
they were only going to use it for 500 miles MAX!i thought if you disconect the speedo when you put it back in the ecu clocks the miles back up?
duno idiots at the pub talking crap i guess?

For the ecu to know it has even moved it needs to receive a speed reading, it is possible that it uses another sensor if it has one but I see no need for it have another, for what function, therefore if it does no know it has moved it cannot clock up miles it knows nothing about.
If you want me to look in to this in more detail I will try to get a wiring diagram for the van and let youm know if there is any way they could have done this.

if the speedo was taken out wil the van ecu still run and fuel correctly?
if you have time i would like to know how this could have been done, but if your tied up with other things then maybe when you get 5 mins?
