I am considering installing a Tornado Gas Saving device in my trucks intake. I am not a speed freak and I would very much rather save gas than having a pocket rocket truck. In that sense, would that device be a good gas-saving option? It costs $69.99 at Pep Boys. I would appreciate any experiences or insights. I am really trying to find ways to save gas in both of my vehicles.

What I have researched it doesn't work. If it did, I think the car companies would consider it to boost milage. They are always under the gun to improve mpg.

DO NOT BUY! .... IF YOU DO, I have some turnsignal fluid I can sell you for a great price...these trucks really use it fast.

Seriously man, save your money...worthless junk

Even if it did work on certain vehicles I don't think it would work with ours, because there are tons of baffles in the air box that would just disrupt any "tornado" of air before it gets to the throttle body or intake manifold. If you lift up that beauty panel on the top of the engine you can see the route that the air takes before it gets to the throttle body.

it's complete BS. i'm sure half of the reason the people that buy them claim they work is so they don't feel foolish for wasting money on it. don't waste your money.

I agree. like when somebody buys a car that gets upgraded with 50 more hp the next year. they still love their car b/c they're still paying on it. :lol:
