    Anyone tried an Ecotek valve ?

    Been wondering whether to try the following, anyone have one fitted and if so do they work ?

    Quote from www.ecotekplc.com as follows ;

    The Ecotek CB-26P works brilliantly on all GTi models and has been thoroughly reviewed in Rabbit - the Club GTi Magazine (see the GTi Reviews Page) where a member said: "It was quite unreal just how much difference this thing actually made!"

    I've heard too many stories about these. So I would never fit one to my car.

    They are supposed to save fuel, but when my mate fitted one to his Lupo GTi it sounded like a duck and made no difference

    Seen it used on a SEAT Ibiza 2.0 16v gti and it was utter crap. Just made noise, no difference to anything else. I've heard nothing but bad stories about them

    They are just a controlled air leak.

    Completely useless - avoid.
