Spoiler alert: The Fuel Save Pro looks a lot like all the other dubious green and white plug-in OBD-2 devices I’ve blogged about.

Watching a Youtube video and I came across yet another fuel saving device ad, this one called the Fuel Save Pro, promising to reduce my fuel consumption by 35% while increasing power by 35% and torque by 25%.

Their website is www.fuelsavepro-chip.com.

And here are screenshots from their ad.

So, is the Fuel Save Pro the OBD-2 plug in device th eone that’ll save me enormous amounts of money with its fuel saving technology.

Well, probably not. Here’s why.

Fuelsavepro-chip.com and dubious web search results.

The first red flag that tips me off that the Fuel Save Pro is not legit is the website.

Fuel Save Pro is not some established company that you’re just now hearing about, they literally popped out of nowhere, copied the template of previous fuel saver websites, and photoshopped their new logo onto the old images.

Here’s the WHOIS search results for FuelSavePro-Chip.com. The website was created on July 28, 2022 and, with an expiry date of one year from then, doesn’t seem like they plan to stick around.

WHOIS search results from GoDaddy.com

Then there’s the top search results when you look up “Fuel Save Pro Chip” on Google, first page of search results is mostly filled with paid for reviews on websites like outlookindia.com, techtimes.com, and mercurynews.com. Mercury News (aka the San Jose Mercury News) is a legit news source but, if you click on their ad it clearly shows it’s sponsored content and has no affiliation with Mercury news themselves.

What pops up when you search Fuel Save Pro on Google.

Even the People also ask snippet is stuffed with questionable answers from sites like decanherald.com and greenmatters.com.

The Google Snippet for “Is fuel save pro legit.” Questionable!

Thankfully, the only real search result that, like me, wants to debunk the Fuel Save Pro is from Youtuber Jordan Liles.

It’s not obvious to the average internet user but, by placing biased articles on websites that have been on the internet for a couple of years, sites that are open to posting almost anything for a small fee, whoever is behind Fuel Save Pro is able to rank these strategically placed articles so it’s the first set of search results that pop up when looking up “Fuel Save Pro.”

In other words, just because Fuel Save Pro search results link to positive articles doesn’t mean what they post is true…at all.

Fuel Save Pro looks a lot like those other Fuel Saving devices I’ve blogged about.

I invite you to check out www.tiremeetsroad.com/tag/fuel-saver, I’ve blogged about 15 fuel saving products thus far.

More specifically, check out my blogs on the

Notice anything? They are practically all the same because, in all likelihood, they are!

I would not be surprised if all these OBD2 device sites were made by the same person.

The likely truth about Fuel Save Pro and any other magic green and white OBD-2 device that you see advertised on the internet.

As I’ve blogged about before what these people do is order a whole bunch of Green and White OBD-2 devices from China for as little as $1 each, make a website that’s likely copied from all the other fuel saving devices, make a slick ad for Youtube, and buy Youtube ads, probably spending thousands over a several months ad campaign.

As their pricing shows these people will re-sell you this do-nothing $1 device to you for upwards of $50 a piece.

Check out Alibaba.com and search for Fuel Saver and you’ll see what I mean, those green and white OBD-2 devices are probably what will show up in the mail if you buy a Fuel Save Pro.

As debunked numerous times before, these OBD-2 devices have no capability on its chip to talk to your engine’s brain (aka the ECU or the engine’s computer) and can therefore not adjust timing, fuel, and spark on the fly to make your engine use less fuel.

All these devices do is power on and re-play a convincing sequence of flashing LED lights that do nothing but drain your battery if plugged in for too long.


If you came across this blog post before buying a Fuel Save Pro, I think you now know what’s up and, in my opinion, you should not buy this fuel saving device.

But if you already bought this product, I’d try my best to initiate a charge back if you used a credit card. If you used a debit card, you may be out of luck, but I’d call your bank to see if there’s anything they can do on their end to start a refund.


  1. are there a lot of details for true chip-tuning? i have read that there is such thing as chip tuning for different kinds of fuel-based vehicles. there are different kinds of information about this.

    • There’s all kinds of legitimate tuners available for basically any OBD2 vehicle out there but these ‘fuel savers’ are nothing of the sort… literally all they do is drain power from your OBD2 port to run cute little LED lights – do some Google research on tuning available for your specific vehicle and I’m sure you’ll find companies out there that can actually tune your vehicle to get better mpg or more horsepower (but rarely both at once) and it’s also possible to configure many of the electronic features of the car in the case of Ford vehicles (using Forscan) or BMWs (using Bimmercode) and I’m sure many others, those are just what I’ve personally used on my vehicles. Just stay away from these cheap ‘fuel saver’ devices!

    • You’re welcome =) You know, off the top of my head, a name that I trust, that I’ve only heard good things about in the ECU tuning market is Banks Power. They specialize in American made cars, trucks, and SUVs. They have ECU tuners backed by data with custom ECU maps for power, fuel efficiency, and often both. Their products are made in the USA and they might have something for you depending on what vehicle you have. Their website is at http://www.bankspower.com

      If anything, I’d talk to their customer support to pick their brains on how their products might help you save gas.

      Another product I recommend, it’s not an OBD2 device but, consider adding Lucas Oil Fuel Treatment to your car’s maintenance plan. If you read the reviews on Amazon, buyers love the stuff and swear it adds MPG to their driving experience. I’d buy the small bottle to try out and, if you see a difference, buy the bigger bottles, it’s more economical that way and, over time, is where the real fuel savings comes in, the whole “don’t spend a dollar to save a dime.” I forget how it goes. Lucas Oil Fuel Treatment is available at any auto parts store, Wal-Mart, or even Amazon!

  2. Very helpful!!! Glad I wadded thru all the phony red flag reviews till I opened yours.
    Thank you, David from the Mendocino Coast

  3. I purchased a fuel save pro, installed it in my 2011 ram.
    There has been no change in my Miles per gal.
    Have driven 1230 mile with no change.
    when i called for assistance, “I was told was I must not have installed it correctly”?
    Because it had been 6 weeks sense my purchase, they would not accept a return because the warrantee was 30day.
    You got it, it is a sham.

  4. You all just have to find the models that cost more. Don’t buy the cheapest discount ones, go all in a spend the big bucks. Folks might have to search around to find the models with more blinks light and crazy high price so you know it just has to have maximum placebo effect.

  5. There’s been all kinds of legit reviews on these devices showing THEY DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING except drain your wallet and likely the battery of your vehicle – literally the only way these things could improve your MPG is through making your pockets thinner and your wallet lighter. There are however legitimate tuners available that actually can improve fuel mileage and horsepower but they require custom software created for your specific vehicle and normally a laptop and OBD2 adapter…I personally bought a custom tune for my BMW M235i and wow did it make a huge difference in power! Just stay away from these cheap Chinese ‘fuel savers’, the only place they belong is in the trash…

  6. Bad, do not buy! Caused the Check Enging light on Mr 2002 V6 Ford Escape to come on!

    I literally spent hundreds of dollars on my SUV getting the Check slight to go out before I made the connection between the two. It kept showing bad fuel injectors.

    And replacing fuel injectors in a transversely mounted V6 engine is expensive because of the firewall is right up next to cylinders 1,2, & 3.

  7. I bought one if these and paid $85 (CAD) for it. Used it for 2 weeks and was actually having problems with my cars computer board. After complaining to Fuel Saver Pro, they only offered $33.75 (USD) back. I then spoke to my legal representative about fraud. Once I brought that to this fraudulent company, they fully refunded me.
