ecu reset

Is there a fuse I can pull to reset the ecu?
Rather not erase radiostations and other settings by pulling the battery.

I remember doing this on my ep3 but don't remember the name of the fuse and if it was inside or in engine compartment.

Pretty sure the radio stations will not be erased.

I just wanted to do it after I installed the new airbox and filter.
In my head it feels like I get a bit worse mpg but it could be the heat (up to 28*C ambient here now).
On the trip home from the country after I reset the battery I struggled to get 46mpg (6.1 l/100km) at the motorway at mostly 60mph on the meter.
Ended up giving up and popped off the eco and went alot faster for the remaining part of the journey.

Anyway, I ended up just unplugging the negative cable on the battery for about half an hour and most settings were saved indeed (Everything in i-mid settings), excluding average fuel consumption, clock and radio stations.
