Anyone fitted one of these? - too good to be true?

http://www.ecotekplc.com/

Check out the claims and then the reviews - too many high profile ones for this to be just hype?

If so, my 1.6 could be a diesel rivalling gas sipper!! Stiloboy would love this if it's as good as they say!;)

:D

1.6 3dr Dynamic in Azzuro Sprint. Standard apart from mats, sill kick plates and rear spoiler.

My impression after reading the reviews are that it might be better suited to older engines without fuel injection. There has been load of devices like this over the years claiming all sorts of wonderous things, but I would like to see a properly conducted test done before I believe anything. It probably does help with emmissions on older engines but the fuel economy claim seems a bit spurious.

The biggest single factor affecting fuel economy is the driver itself... and it don`t cost a penny to do something about that.

i'd heard that it's tricky if not impossible to fit on the stilo, not sure if it was here on another forum, but someone said that the installer guy couldn't fit it to theirs

I've read that about it being better fitted to old car, which is a bit worrying as it basically acts as a hole in the servo, which can't be nice when most cars rely on servo'd brakes! [:0]

Mince, if it really improved economy it would be fitted by the cars manufacturer when the car was built!
