The Ecotune OBD2 fuel-saver promises 35% fuel savings. It sounds too good to be true…because it probably is!

Earlier this week I was browsing my blog to see if a post loads correctly and to my surprise I come across an ad, from my site, for the Ecotune OBD2 fuel-saver.

On top of that, I was actually served a Youtube video ad from Ecotune as well. Clearly Ecotune is dropping a lot of money on ad space recently.

So, does the Ecotune OBD2 fuel-saver actually work?

No, the Ecotune OBD2 plug-and-play fuel saver does not work, is programmed to play a convincing sequence of LED lights, and is a waste of your time and money.

Fuel saver devices like this are nothing new

If you’re new to fuel-saving devices, these types of plug-and-play electronics have been sold to gullible car owners for years.

From plugging into your OBD-2 port to sliding into your car’s cigarette lighter, all these devices promise remarkable fuel savings as the electronic device learns and optimizes your car’s engine for maximum efficiency.

I actually blogged about the exact some OBD2 fuel saver, under a different name, earlier last month.

Although they’re sold under different names, with unique packaging and have fancy websites, these style of OBD2 fuel savers are pretty much all scams and should be avoided at all costs.

As mentioned on my blog post about the Ecobox fuel-saver, independent analysis from professionals and amateurs determined, after dissecting several of these OBD2 fuel savers, that there’s no actual connection and communication between the device and your car’s ECU.

If the device can’t talk to your ECU it literally cannot adjust for fuel, air, and timing.

What about this Ecotune OBD2 fuel saver?

Despite the convincing video with “proof” and website testimonials praising the Ecotune OBD2 fuel saver, I can confidently say that this Ecotune OBD2 fuel saver is just like all the others and is likely a scam.

What these sites do is buy hundreds (if not thousands) of generic OBD2 fuel savers from China for $3 a piece (or less,) design their own packaging, and re-sell it to you for $40 a piece.

Here’s a handful of generic ones you can buy from popular Chinese wholesale site Alibaba.com Click here to see for yourself.

These devices, like this Ecotune, are being pushed extra-hard to consumers right now because fuel prices are at historic highs.

They’re wanting to take advantage of your worry about gas prices into buying this generic (scam) fuel-saver.

How can I actually save fuel?

While there are no cheap and easy fixes like these devices promise there are free tips and helpful practices that you can use right now.

Energy.GOV has a list of helpful fuel-saving tips including combining trips, stripping your car of unnecessary weight, keeping your car in tip-top shape, and how to avoid aggressive driving.

By themselves, each tip might not seem like a lot but, combined over time, the fuel-savings make a difference.

It’s worth noting that these recent spikes in gas prices are mostly a short-term affect of demand outpacing supply.

Analysts predict gas prices will return to Pre-Pandemic levels by early 2022.

    • The recent spike in fuel prices is caused by better contol of Covid-19 in highly industrialized nations and the reluctance of OPEC to pump more crude. Biden controls neither cause and the clown suit is worn by you.

  1. Biden rose the gas prices by halting the use of our pipelines and using other transport methods to bring the oil to the consumers, (1000 miles away) which costs fuel costs together with transport costs raises our gas prices. Reason would be so we have control of all the oil once everyone else’s oil is gone. Smart??? Nope, puts a giant target on our back for someone who wants to gain control in an industry that will have become astronomical in value due to shortage and limited supply indefinitely m, which in turn will have history repeat itself with a world war because with all the hate America had learned to express, we will no longer be the superpower of the world. And will be easy to take us over perhaps by China by sheer population advantage. Seeing that their population is about to double with the new laws of have as many children as you want. Who can fight 3 billion people??? With our allies becoming scarce I don’t think 400 million will have a chance.

  2. Biden qualified?! What a joke. He and his cronies know nothing about the business of America and western civilization. He only knows how to be a politician. He has no idea how to lead a free market, capitalist economy that built this great country. He has no real job experience. The truth is:
    Capitalism funds what socialism spends! and provides a profit (pursuit of a better life) for those who work and innovate and create opportunity for those who seek it.
