    This looks pretty good, what do you think?

    Voyo with EcoStart – The world’s first plug and play Start/Stop system. Start/Stop is an anti-idling technology that saves fuel by shutting off the engine when the vehicle is stopped. Car manufacturers claim that Start/Stop increases fuel efficiency by up to 10%. The average Voyo driver who saves 20 minutes of idling per day will save hundreds of dollars per year, reducing gas consumption by 60 gallons and decrease CO2 emissions by over 1200 lbs. To use EcoStart, a driver connects the standard Voyo unit and two Voyomotive Relays.

    Hi 96Sentra:

    The 10 percent figure is vastly over stated. Secondly, you want to be careful with this as a non Start/Stop system does not have the battery monitoring, robust starter and larger deep cycle battery that one with does.

    IHTHs?

    Note the typical "up to" weasel-wording, an ancient advertising trick which lets them imply an overstated claim without actually saying anything that can be proven wrong.

    Anybody who falls for a meaningless "up to" claim ...

    Better fuel efficiency is all about little things adding up -- so this could be an easy tool to help.
