    SCAM! All scam . Coz it DONT work on carburator engine, so scam tipu bohong one all this SAFC and emanage lah.

    what right leg control on pedal ? imagine go slow from KL to somewhere, u drive 10kmph takes you 10 hours, OR 100kmph takes you 1 hours .... would burning 10 hours petrol cost more or 1 hours ??

    its all about balance. and not everything works on every cars.

    it does not work on your car is not call scam, its called NOT COMPATIBLE.

    FC is all about your right leg.. you press hard, the fuel will go in hard.. a far as i concern, wana make your car more economic, try to lighten it a little bit and upgrade the performance as it can manage the weight of the body.. if performance to high, fuel also high.. if weight to heavy, engine needs a bigger power to drag the capasity.. so needs much fuel.. haha.. this is just my oppinion.. sorry if i got wrong here..

    actually icecube has a point. if u just press dem kaw less, like revving 1-1.5k rpm only all the time, it will make your trip inefficient, so consume more fuel also.

    what you need to do is drive mostly at around 2.5k rpm - 3k rpm max. This is true for low cc NA cars (maybe 1L to 1.8L kua, guessing).. and avoid hard acceleration.

    ETC if not mistaken is a replacement for conventional cable pedal.. so that car didn't use a cable on acceleration pedal..

    All cars have standard setting with used to maintain the lifetime and reduce the maintaining cost... and of course small cc will have a low FC compare with big CC and depend on type of engine... sohc, dohc, V6, V8 and rotary also have a different FC even the CC is same.. V-type engine suitable for cruising or long distance... rotary consider as high performance engine and the FC is also high.. common engine is only sohc and dohc while acceleration for dohc is better than sohc.. to get a better FC, use a suitable car for a suitable journey, with a suitable driving style...

    ETC is pretty simple device. It just bypass the signal of your throttle sensor. U press sikit, the sensor tell ecu u press banyak. lidat lor.

    all are good device to make good business.. muahahaha

    the throttle control which advertises fuel saving is actually just another gadget that makes another fool part with their money.

    the gadget actually just amplifies your throttle response, so in return no saving is achieved

    so, the best fuel saver is actually the nut behind the wheel...
