You don't really need all that kit for 60 mpg in a light(ish) 206 HDi.
I can get 60 mpg out of my heavier V50 1.6L "HDi" when the DPF regeneration isn't working against me.

That's a mere 0.54 HP.
(ECA Systems are using 8000W or close to 11 HP, which is around what you could actually drive a car with @ constant speed.)
