    Whats peoples take on this?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/EconoMAX-30-Pe...ht_6445wt_1165

    Looks interesting... am I missing something, looks to good to be true.

    Anyone seen this before, or used it?

    if it sounds to good to be true, it normally is. wonder where the tests were done and if they would publish the true results??

    i'm not mechanically minded so would have no idea how it works, if in fact it does.

    This ad has a table on it with some MPG of cars before and after the mod. The best increase is from a car with a really low MPG at the start. I'm guessing the higher your MPG before the mod the lower the increase will be, and vice versa.

    Yeh i wouldnt trust it at all.. Something sitting in your air intake pipe and happens to break or snap? or the bits go straight to the throttle body...
    I would avoid it, if your trying save room, shed some weight out of the car. Excess equipment?
    Spare tyre?
    avoid harsh breaking and acclerating all do help.

    HANG ON 35BHP INCREASE.... BUY!!!!

    will it or wont it work ?

    well inserting this will restrict a little air flow but any vortex
    that is generated would be lost i think along the inlet trackt if there are any bends between it and the
    valvesthe vortex would also be stopped
    from forming by the closing and opening of the valves just try it in the bath and put your hand over the plug hole when it is about a third full you will feel the suction and then it stops remove the hand and it will form again but i cant see it being as efficent as the seller states , also £8.99 for postage and all it is, is a small flat piece of ally that you have to bend into shape so if it doesnt work they can tell you that you havnt bent to the right shape etc etc etc .
    could all be wrong on this and it could be the next big thing but some how i dont think so.
    my advice ? dont buy it


    just my opinion whats yours ?

    it has to be bullshit

    if it did what it claims to do then the manufacturers would fit them as standard

    sounds like the same thing as those magnet things you stick on your fuel lines to "align the fuel particles". waste of brass IMO
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
