I received the Condensator kit for review and installed it into my 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid. Included was a good length of hose, various other smaller bits of hose, some adaptors to connect the bits of hoses to various sizes of hoses in your vehicle, some zip ties, and of course the instruction sheet.
The unit itself is very sturdy and looks like it would last the lifetime of the vehicle. It is made of a very thick strong plastic. I was able to install this in my 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid without having to buy any additional pieces of hose or connectors and it only required a screwdriver. However, its bulky size did make my scratch my head for a while trying to figure out where I could get it to fit, and how I could get hoses to it.
I would say that it probably took 20 to 30 minutes to install. It could take longer depending on the vehicle and if you have to modify your car.
Unfortunately, it did nothing at all.
I removed it and it is being tested on a Ford Ranger. So far with the Ranger is showing the same results. It will be moved over to another vehicle to see if the results are replicated a third time.
One reason I think it didn't work so well is because the 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid is already a very clean engine.
The Condensator is pretty pricey at $179. In my time with it installed, I give it the lowest grade for value because it added nothing. If it ends up working on the Ford Ranger the score will be revised. So far it hasn't.
