    i comented on these on another thread i have been tuning car for years now
    here is my 2p worth
    if you are adding a filter this will decrease your mpg unless you match the paramiters of the inlet (filter) to the outlet (exhaust) the chances of getting this bang on is near zero and if you got it bang on i strongly sudjest you put the lottery on!!!!!!
    as for the magnet fuel saver---- i have a 330d a bowler wildcat a new shape astra d a meastro turbo (the fastest car on santapod raceway 2001-2002) and a rib (boat) all my cars run with 3 ecotecs on each vehicle and DO make a difference in the mpg and the running of the vehicle... the biggest key is to get the ecotec as close to the injectors or pump as possible...... do you all know the lighter trick with a magnet?????????
    the chip for 99p crack is as follows (ebay) the ecu on any car judges the inlet temp of the inlet manifold and sways the parameters of the mass meter to suit... this is done via the temp sensor on the manifold itself.............
    you remove the plug and place a resistor in the plug and drive as normal..... the ecu now thinks your car is up mount everest in air more dense than a hoover... so adjusts the mixture to suite..... you will see a very slight difference in the way the revs pick up but thats about it..............in short it does work but dont bother!!!!
