Fan service solely or sexually pleases fans. Ecchi is sexual content. Feel free to add on or delete what I haven't or have said. Can you say ecchi and fan service are the same?
We see some fan service in Code Geass. We see ecchi in Asu no Yoichi. Can you say Code Geass has/is ecchi?
If you mentioned "ecchi", how do you explain it?

fan service?

In my opinion, no. Fan service is the act upon when the anime presents things that fans want, that doesn't just limit itself to ecchi.
As for the definition, I'll go with this:

According to this, fan service is anything that has nothing to do with the actual story. Echi I'm pretty sure just applies to the more sexualized fan servics ex. pantyshots.

Ecchi falls into the category of fanservice, but fanservice may not be ecchi necessarily. Therefore, ecchi is fanservice, but fanservice is NOT ecchi.

Lol, well lets get some things clear. Usually Ecchi anime have 1 or 2 episodes of Fan service (then again almost all ecchi anime's are essentially fan service) which in many cases have absolutely nothing to do with the story. In these episodes parts of the body which are usually covered in the regular episodes are shown just too please the people who have bin dieing to see them. Well in my opinion that's the difference between the two and I'm sure there's people who will disagree

A great example would be the OVA's for Ikki Tousen Dragon Destiny


I'm sure after having said that and showing that tons of perverts are going to end up searching for them lol (there's 6 of them if I'm not mistaken)

Fan service isn't restricted to just ecchi but it seems to be the most common thing

part of the charm of all anime is that it is overly sexualized, although the fan service crap does get pretty annoying when it never furthers the plot but its been happening since the 60s so get over it everyone!
