It will entirely depend upon the content of the egg replacer that you are planning to use and the recipe for the mayonnaise that you are planning to use. Mayonnaise is emulsified fat (egg yokes, vegetable oil, etc.) and most egg replacers such as Egg Beaters are just the egg whites.

You will need to have some fat in the mix.

O I should mention It is made from Potato Starch, Tapioca flour, Leavening Cellulose gum carbohydrate gum. It acts the same as eggs in Baked goods.

"Contains: potato starch, tapioca flour, calcium lactate, calcium carbonate, citric acid, and carbohydrate gum."

I don't think that would work for making mayo.

A couple of websites say the stuff "is best used in baked goods only."

There are a number of eggless mayo recipes that I just looked up, but looks like they all use soy milk.
