    magnet thingy that goes over the fuel line

    right seeing the great responce from the ecotek valve, i thought you lot might be interested in a new device, orginally found on qvc this device attaches to the fuel line (its magnetic) and pulls the atoms in the fuel round to face the same way, it actually saves you fuel and reduces emissions on tick over, to 0.0, from what i was told most cars are supposed to run on 0.5 on tick over, a friend of mine fitted it and the results are exactly as advertised, hes not had any grumbles with it, and by the sounds of things its offering the same as an ecotek valve, i just bought one, il let you know how i get on with it, if it works, it'll be a bargain at £25, if anyone else wants one let me know and il get the product number for it

    Sounds good mate. Saving fuel is never a bad thing. Never heard of this product, but keep us posted mate. Wish manufacturers would just put these bloody things on in the first place! Lol, then again, you could say that about 18's, brembo's, -60mm drops, full bodykits etc etc as standard on cars like ours. :roll:

    My mate fitted a Broquet to his Pug 309, took it off again when it started running like an Iraqi tank

    The Broquet is designed to catalyse unleaded fuel and add something to it to run in cars with lead only engines. I think the magnet thang is summat else and a load of old snake oil TBH. I've heard of these 'clamp on' fuel alterers before, can't remember the name but one company did get sued and beaten in court

    It's not a new product, been around for years, i've got all the info on them here if you want them mark, always wanted to test this but always thought £50 is a lot to loose if it's rubbbish, even though they do money back offer.

    Can buy them on ebay as well
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say
