    Hey,

    Im thinking about getting an Ecotek valve for my car. Do any of you use them, if so do you think you have saved fuel?

    They don't work, and have had the advertising standards agency on them in the past.

    They might work on an old car that has a carb, but on a new car, the ECU will compensate for any extra air. It's all fibs, seriously. :)

    Oh and for the record yes, I've used one and I got rid of it :)

    They also say they don't work with DCOE carbs either

    That's sidedraught Weber carbs for anyone that doesn't know.

    Will an Ecotek valve help me save fuel if I fit one of these?
