tornado fuel saver ?

Hey guys anyone ever tried the tornado fuel saver? Good if work, but does it. The way gas prices are going anything to increase fuel economy is a good thing. Wonder about those infomercial items. Thanks

I looked into buying one a couple of years ago. I couldn't find anyone other than those on their website who said it worked. I'd save my money. I sure wish there was a gadget out there that would give me 25% better fuel economy.

Yes, after I asked question I went and checked out consumer reports. They said it did nothing ever hurt one car. Have to look for another way to save gas and increase hp.

A small Mustang shop dyno'd a car with one about a year or so ago and it lost like 7 hp and 4ft-lbs of torque. The only wind you are going to feel from this tornado is the one that blows the money out of your pocket.
