NO, no, no, save your money. These things simply do not work. Don't believe all the hype and all the testimonials as to how the Tornado is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Someone is probably going to come on here telling you that I am wrong and that they bought one and got 3,4, even 5 more mpg with the Tornado. They spent money for the product and they want it to work. So they make sure it does work by how they drive. In every single test by the EPA and every other independent test facility, these type products have been shown to not work. Look at it this way. The auto manufactures are struggling to achieve CAFE mileage standards. If this thing worked, they would install it at the factory in order to increase their cars mileage. They don't. What does that tell you?. how this person can say this without at least citing were to found the official results on such EPA and independent tests. ========================================================= I have to say I disagree with the above opinion as I have personally had great success when installed properly. Don't believe these can be installed wrong? Go to YouTube and find a tornado test done by a news reporter and watch him install it then say it does not work? Again if you are mechanically minded you will find his install leaves the device loose and too close to the throttle body.

For one: My results can not talked down as my driving habits have not changed, only my mpg.

Two: Regardless of the company, any company promoting a product that simply does nothing could in no way be picked up by the vendors which still carry the tornado nor would local governments use them which some still do. Sure there are suckers born everyday, but wouldn't a company run out of idiots after the many years they have been in service?

Bottom Line: It worked on a 4cyl and a V6 I own..........I doubt I am the only one it worked for.

You could try a fuel catalyst. They're different than fuel additives because they actually help your engine burn fuel more efficiently. The one I use is Fuel Infusion - and I see about a 10-15% increase in MPG. Others have reported larger gains. Anyway, besides good car maintenance, a fuel catalyst is a cheap way to increase your gas mileage. Good Luck!

Yes it will. Not a huge difference, but if you put a nice dual exhaust system behind them, including a balance pipe, you will increase your horsepower and your mileage. You might expect to see 1-2 mpg.

Don't waste your money. None of these devices work. If they did, Honda would install them at the factory. Do not believe the hype or testimonials. They simply are a waste of money and do nothing to improve mileage.
