Did a 220 mile drive from Essex to York and used 5.3 Gallons of petrol with the Eco-tek turned off. On the way back got caught in traffic for 1/2 hour and had the air-con on using more petrol and managed to get 5.3 again with it on but after taking off the traffic factor and the air-con factor I would have used 5.1 gallons.
The only thing that pisses me off is the farting sound it makes when hitting about 1500rpm but you get used to it.
I will show you down Southend on Sat if you want and how to fit it. Simple Dimple.
I had a look on the website and saw your instructions! I just think if it increases fuel economy, reduces emissions and get rid of the lumpiness from cold starts then its worth it for £70. Id get it with the air filter as it reduces the noise a bit apparently.
Im not bothered about any performance increases. Did you tell your insurance company?
It is not a performance inhancer so why tell them. BTW I have the filter as you can see but it is still noisey. It doesnt inhance performance in anyway, my 172 is still lumpy first thing after a few days of standing, I suppose that is the downside of having a highly tuned engine.
