Question How do you pronounce Ecotec?


With an "eck," or an "eek?" Hopefully the engine will never do anything that makes me say, "Eek!"

I'm guessing you mean "eekoteck," but I'm not sure.

I always just assumed it was eeeeekk ho tech b/c it's supposed to be ecologically friendly technology. Plus if a proper linguistics dude wanted it to be pronounced ecko tech then there'd be two c's just like ego and eggo.

By the way, i used to eat eggos right out of the freezer> I did this at a neighbor's house. One time as I was walking back across the street he threw one at me. it landed in the street. I picked it up, said thank you, and ate it on the spot.

His expression was priceless.


OOPS off topic again
