There is a eCola store on the corner of Exeter Avenue and Uranium Street, East Holland, Algonquin and on Beaumont Avenue near the intersection of Guantanamo Avenue in Industrial, Bohan. The player can also purchase an eCola background for their upgraded phone via Vipluxuryringtones.com. Yankee trucks may appear with an all-red eCola livery, complete with eCola logos on the sides.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the player can purchase and drink eCola cans that can be bought from convenience stores and vending machines. There is also a version of eCola known as eCola Light, as seen in GTA V on soda dispensers in convenience stores.
