WARNING!: Chinese Made Copies of Tomei Fuel Pressure Regulators

This is the first and long awaited announcement of the fake copies of Tomei Powered products that are being sold around the world these days. Read for more important information

Recently the market is being flooded with more and more copied items of many brands, including ours. You may have heard rumors that Tomei products are made in China. Well there are a lot of copied Tomei products made in China. This is true. It is hard and near impossible for us to stop these companies making knockoffs due to the international legalities and also being China….

So here are is the detailed information on the copied Tomei Fuel Pressure Regulator that is being sold on eBay and other so called authorized Tomei dealers.

These fake regulators are poor in quality as they have leak. This is dangerous as you know. Problems caused are engine failure and/or fire! Don’t risk your car, investment and life with these fake items. The problem is these look very close to the real ones so here is how you can tell the fake one from the real one.

THE REGULATOR BODY

We will put more information online of those copied items out on the market as soon as can.
If you were tricked into buying one please let us know.
If you knew that is was a fake that you bought, then please be careful when using that it won’t fail on you. Fake products like these can cause you a lot of problems and can cause terminal engine failure.

Please do not risk damaging your engine and a fire risk with a fake copied fuel pressure regulator.

We cannot support you with the fake ones and naturally there is no warranty with the fake ones.
Each and every Tomei Fuel Pressure Regulator is meticulously inspected one by one in person here in Japan after they are made.

There are shops selling these fake copies online and from shops in China, Taiwan, Malaysia and from other Asian countries in that area. Also we have heard of the fake ones being sold in the UK and the USA. Ones sold on ebay are sometimes packaged with hoses and guages which was never sold by Tomei.  We will be releasing Fuel Pressure Guages in the near future. Those will have our logos on them.

The signs of a fake Tomei Fuel Pressure Regulator

– Price listed under $108.00 USD for the Fuel Pressure Regulator alone.

– Free Pressure gauge offered

– Free shipping

– Sellers Location (Singapore, Malaysia and any Asian countries in that region are a good sign of a fake item source) But recently eBay sellers in the UK, the USA & Australia are buying from those sellers and relisting on ebay in other countries.

DO NOT TRUST the images used on the listing, as sellers often use our images (which are readily available for download off our website) and they send the fake item out.

This is an example of what one of the buyers received in the mail,

If you have accidentially purchased a fake fuel pressure regulator, DO NOT USE it on your engine. You save a little, but then destroy your engine, which is worse? OR which COSTS MORE???

WHAT TO DO

– Request for an immediate refund to the seller,

– make a claim to eBay

– make a claim to Paypal (if you had used paypal to pay for the item)

CONTACT US (So we can publicly announce it for the rest of the general public to know, YES you can remain anonymous!)

Thank you for your time
