earthing kits

hi, i was wondering if anyone has tryed one of these earthing kits that claim to provide more power and ecconomy by earthing the car from the battery to 5 more points on the car to provide less resistance and a more efficiant electical system. in theory it sounds good but i was wondering how inefficiant the system is and how much of a differance the kit could make. let me know your thoughts
thanks

Re: earthing kits

It is not going to give you any more power or economy. If the cabeling from your battery to earth wasn't good enough then you will have problems with cranking when starting and overheating of the cables ,but once the car is running then there would be virtually no effect as the cable is that size simply for the massive power surge needed on cranking.

It won't do any harm to have more earth points but you would gain more economy from simply inflating your tyres more than you would from having more earth points if that is your aim.
