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.

Anyway, besides good car maintenance, a fuel catalyst is a cheap way to increase your gas mileage. Good Luck!

Is tailing a semi down the highway a good way to increase miles per gallon?

yes it will increase your fuel mileage. if you get close enough you can back out of the throttle and feel your vehicle being pulled along due to the drafting effect caused by filling the vacuum void following any object forcing its way thru the air. i would definitely advise you to not do this at any time however. the increase in your fuel mileage comes at a price for the truck as decreased fuel mileage. if you do not want to pay for your fuel consumption, i can guarantee the truck driver won't want to either. besides the safety factor of the truck driver not being able to see you, do not be surprised if the truck driver suddenly brakes hard and you eat his trailer bumper.
